Dominion (poem)

Choose one of the poems attached and interpret what it’s trying to say. What is its thesis? Which words convince you that this is the poem’s thesis? How do the poem’s other sections and lines contribute to or contradict this thesis? Identify the poem’s different sections, describe the function of each section, and discuss the details from each section that lead you to assign it a function. Limit quotations to strings of less than five words; be sure to include in-text parenthetical citations to ground your analysis in the text.

I don’t want to sound unreasonable
but I need to be in love immediately.
I can’t watch this sunset
on 14th Street by myself.
5 Everyone is walking fast
right after therapy, texting back
their lovers orange hearts
and unicorns—it’s insane to me.
They’re missing this free sunset
10 willingly! Or even worse
they’re going home to cook
and read this sad poem online.
Let me tell you something,
people have quit smoking.
15 They don’t get drinks
but they juice. There are
way too many photos
and most all of us look better
in them than we do in life.
20 What happened? This is
truly so embarrassing!
I want to make a case
for 1440 minutes every day
where we stop whatever else
25 is going on and look each other
in the eyes. Like dogs.
Like morning newspapers
in the evening light. So long!
So much for this short drama.
30 We will die one day
and our cheap headlines
won’t apply to anything.
The internet will be forgotten.
All the praise and pandering.
35 I’d really rather take a hike
and by the way, I’m gay.
The sunset too is homosexual.
At least today, between
the buildings which are moody
40 and the trees (which honestly)
they look a bit unhealthy here.
They’re anxious. They’re concerned.
They’re wondering why
I’m broke and lonely
45 in Manhattan—though of course
I’ll never say it—and besides,
it’s almost spring. It’s fine.
It’s goth. Hello! The truth is
no one will remember us.
50 We’re only specks of dust
or one—one speck of dust.
Some brutes who screamed
for everything to look at us.
Well, look at us. Still terrible
55 and awful. Awful and pretending
we’re not terrible. Such righteous
saints! Repeating easy lines,
performing our great politics.
It’s just so very boring,
60 the real mystery in fact
is how we managed to make room
for love at all. Punk rock,
avant-garde cinema.
I love you, reader
65 but you should know
the sunset’s over now.
I’m standing right in front of
Nowhere bar, dehydrated
and quite scared
70 but absolutely willing
to keep going. It makes sense
you do the same. It’s far
too late for crying and quite
useless too. You can be sad
75 and still look so good. You can
say New York is beautiful
and it wouldn’t be a headline
and it wouldn’t be a lie.
Just take a cab and not the 6,
80 it’s never once in ten years
been on time. It’s orbiting
some other world
where there are sunsets
every hour and no money
85 and no us—that’s luck!
The way to get there
clearly wasn’t written down.
Don’t let that stop you though.
Look at the sky. Kiss everyone
90 you can for sure. For more information on  Dominion (poem)check on this:
