Dangerous Astronomy


by Sherman Alexie

Analysis: Calling Card

Conversational Tone

While it's hard to identify this poem as belonging to Sherman Alexie, we can recognize his conversational tone and his reliance on natural imagery. Although Alexie doesn't make a habit out of writing poems in traditional forms, this one has the laid-back, first-person voice that we find in so much of his work. Classic Alexie.
