The Bean Eaters
(2) Sea Level
Let's face it – this poem is pretty much a walk in the park. OK, it's not so full of balloons and ice cream as your normal park, but it's still pretty easy to wander through. Our speaker lays out a scene before our eyes, in simple language and without much elaborate imagery. It doesn't create a very happy space, but it's also not that hard to dwell in for a little while.
