can anyone come up with an idea for a short narrative for the poem "In the tube" by Richard Aldington.
it has to fill a gap in the poem, in other words it has to say what it hasn't in the poem. the focus is on 'marginalization'
i have to write an epistolary narrative on it
Here is the poem:
The electric car jerks;
I stumble on the slats of the floor,
Fall into a leather seat
And look up.
A row of advertisements,
A row of windows,
Set in brown woodwork pitted with brass nails,
A row of hard faces,
In the swaying train,
Rush across the flickering background of fluted dingy tunnel;
A row of eyes,
Eyes of greed, of pitiful blankness, of plethoric complacency,
Gaze, stare at one point,
At my eyes.
[p.24] Cut my brain, as a dry sharp reed
Cuts a finger.
I surprise the same thought
In the brass-like eyes:
'What right have you to live?'
