    Oystering

    Secret they are, sealed, annealed, and brainless
    And solitary as Dickens said, but
    They have something to say: that there is more
    Than one way to yield. The first—and the hardest.
    The most nearly hindered—is when you pull
    Them off the rocks, a stinking, sawing sedge
    Sucking them back under the black mud, full
    Of hermit crabs and their borrowed snailshells,
    Minnows scattering like superstitions,
    The surf dragging, and every power
    Life permits them holding out, holding on
    For dear life. Sometimes the stones give way first.
    Before they will, but still we gather them,
    Even if our hands are bloody as meat,
    For a lunch Queen Victoria preferred:
    "A barrel of Wellfleet oysters, points down"
    Could last across the ocean, all the way
    To Windsor, wakening a widow's taste.
    We ate them this afternoon, out of their
    Armor that was formidably grooved, though
    It proved our own reversal wiser still:
    Keep the bones and stones inside, or never
    Leave the sea. "He was a brave man," Swift said,
    "Who first eat one." Even now, precedent
    Of centuries is not always enough.
    Driving the knife into muscles that mould
    The valves so close to being impartial.
    Surrender, when it comes—and it must come:
    Lavish after that first grudging release
    Back there in the sea, the giving over
    Of despair, this time—makes me speculate.
    Like Oscar and oysters, I feel "always
    Slightly immortal when in the sea": what
    Happens now we are out? Is the risk worth
    While for a potential pearl? No, what we're
    Really after is the moment of release,
    The turn and tear of the blade that tightens,
    Tortures, ultimately tells. When you spread
    The shells, something always sticks to the wrong
    One, and a few drops of liquor dribble
    Into the sand. Scrape it off: in the full
    Half, as well as a Fautrier, a Zen
    Garden, and the smell of herring brine that
    Ferenczi said we remember from the womb,
    Lunch is served, in shiny stoneware sockets,
    Blue milk in the sea's filthiest cup. More
    Easily an emblem for the inner man
    Than dinner, sundered, for the stomach. We
    Take them queasily, wonder as we gulp
    When it is—then, now, tomorrow—they're dead. read more »
