Poem 258

This poem seems not so much about a particular experience as it is about
the mystery of nature itself, the tragic transience of beauty. She loves
paradox and irony: "Cathedral tunes" evokes both majestic splendor and
whistle-while-you-work. "Heavenly hurt" is a lament that whatever life is,
it goes away in the end, and no one escapes the "internal difference". What
she seems to want is for everyone to "get it," to grasp the perceptual
potential of human life in this world.
