Analysis: Tough-O-Meter

(2) Sea Level

Because this poem is a quick dive into someone else's memory, it could be a little tough to map out exactly what the two did over the course of the night…but that's not really the point of the poem. We're totally able to capture the mood of the night – and that's what the speaker wants us to remember. So: no tough language, no tricky metaphors. Just straight-up happiness. It's a breeze to read!
