Ode to My Socks

Transformation Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #4

two mammoth blackbirds,
two cannons, (25-26)

Now the transformations come faster and faster, one per line as the feet become blackbirds, then cannons. The speaker, it seems, is inspired by the beauty of the socks to rap off a list of images. In this way the socks transform not only themselves and the feet, but the speaker's perspective as well.
