Summary

Stanza III Summary Page 1

Get out the microscope, because we’re going through this poem line-by-line.

Lines 7-9

Then practice losing farther, losing faster:
places, and names, and where it was you meant
to travel. None of these will bring disaster
.

  • The losses mentioned grow somewhat more significant, though they are still vague.
  • The speaker brings up the kinds of things we all attempt to remember but eventually forget – you know the things you maybe mean to write down but never do, like people’s names, or places you’ve been, or places you’d like to go.
  • These losses still aren’t too important.
