RELAPSE?

he has been doing this for years he wasn't at his first rodeo. he is
another example of unfulfilled people's dreams and makes this long trek for
booze regularly. NOT a bleeding heart.

Relapse

Mr. Flood had quit drinking (perhaps after alienating the folks in Tilbury
Town). Then, he relapsed. He can't wait until home before he drains the jug
"he had gone so far to fill."
He pretends he was tempted by "the bird on the wing," or poetry, or "auld
lang syne," which momentarily dulls his sense of shame. "Welcome home" says
the alcoholic upon tasting his first sip. He has lost home, friends, work,
and is now debating with himself or singing on a lonely cold night. The
irony is in the title: "Mr. Flood's Party." A party of one.

This poem is set in the fall, hence "Harvest Moon", NOT new years eve,
despite the song he sings.

Robinson's poem are great. and Mr Flood's party is his masterpiece. it
shows human's suffering as when they age.
