Meditation at Lagunitas

by Robert Hass

Analysis: Sex Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

PG-13

No doubt about it, there’s sex in this poem. If this were a movie, right around line 16 the film would cut to a softly lit room. We catch a glimpse a man and a woman with "soft shoulders." And then, just when things are heating up, cut to a riverbank and a bunch of kids fishing.
