Analysis and comments on Paying The Captain by Russell Edson

Comment 1 of 1, added on January 15th, 2006 at 6:29 PM.

Edson is a zen master! ALL of his work is stimulating, thought-provoking
and, in a sense, mystical....in this particular poem, simply substitute
"the captain," for one's self-seeking ego and you get the picture!!
