Old Criticism

The women were of all kinds

so many stunning ones

passed before me breathless

water flowing round me

rushing cool and smooth

listening so much to the music

I misheard their speech

paid poor attention to the lyrics

costly for an English major

the lesson of misunderstanding


of what they said

missing their point completely

a poor close reading
