Fyi,I think the dress code in Iran should cnltaiery be relaxed, but it is
nowhere near as stringent as the one in place in Saudi Arabia. There is a
debate inside Iran over whether hijab is in fact wajib (mandatory) or
mustahhab (recommended). The issue is unresolved.I am socially liberal on
such matters, but I recognize that many ordinary Iranians are very ardent
about the need for morality policing.

Personally, I don't see either of thoes. It could be interprited as such,
but I definately wouldn't tack it down to that, merely because he mentions
largness and the dance. Then again, I never liked it when people other
than the writer tries to convince people of a meaning. The reason poetry
is beautiful is because it's open to interpritation. To me it's about the
beauty, and different forms that death takes. However if I suspended my
disbelief enough, I'm sure you could interprate it to things soldiers go
through in war, or puberty, or devorce. Either way, don't get caught up
too deeply on tying it to tie it to something, just let it be beautiful,
and influence you in it's own way.

This poem is about a young adolescent exploring her new feelings of
interest in men with both excitement and dread. "Dead" in the poem
symbolizes her sense that the changes of puberty will make her someone as
unimaginable to her younger self as the state of being dead is unimaginable
to an adult.

ohhhhh that sent tingles down my spine- i love the contrast he uses, and
the way he makes you pay attention with the randomness of the punctuation.

you guys!! this poem isn't about death at all, it's about a woman loosing
her virginity. if you keep that in mind and reread the poem, i think it is
apparent. I really like his use of simple (almost childish) language in
this peom to express adult, sexual ideas. Its an intresting contrast.
