Meaning

When you read a poem, it means what you think it means; not what the author
thinks it means. Robert Frost said he never thought of death when he wrote
"Stopping in a woods on a snowy Evening". To me it has always been about
contemplating ones own death and, yes, suicide.
This poem is about a man who willfully and joyfully consumes the very thing
that sustains him. I see it as a metaphor for the way we destroy our
environment for profit, and I think of Easter Island.
