heh! a very good poem about leaving past times behind! and i liked the end
very much :
it doesnt matter if u rip out the street sign or bolt the door ! it doesnt
matter to the cheapskate
who wants the past! who left her with papers on a dead ship ! and then she
opens his pocket book and throw fishes away!

as u see at first she mentions that the man who wants the past travel on a
dead ship ! then she says that she is throwing fishes away! both of them
relate to seas! :D i dont know ! what does it mean?

have a good time

All of her poems are vivid,anyway. How can I understand poems? I read it
and all i see is freaky stuff, I'm troubled too but her poems are just so

This piece really is extremely...I can't think of a word. Anne Sexton
probably could, she's so precise, encapsulating so much meaning in just a
few well-chosen words. She's who I aspire to be, her style, her
imagination, everything! She's really an incredible poet, and I especially
liked this piece. (I also reccommend "The Kiss".)

I can relate to Ann in this poem. I think all of the past comments have
touched on it, so there is really nothing that I could bring to the table
that is new or refreshing. For me, the poem is about forgiveness, and
regaining innocence... What happens when person realizes that they have
come to hate their life and who they have become? How do you recover from
that? How do you gain the love for yourself that you know you should have?
I think that the poem is about searching for healing, healing a broken
life, and healing the past. The poem is about the search for the self, at
least in my mind it is. All I can say is that if I had the chance to have
meet Ann, I would have told her that she is not alone, and when you take
the first step to find the true self, that it is scary and a lonely path.
