    This part shows at least two examples of juxtaposition.

    Tragedies relegated to a three-foot pile of discarded newsprint.

    Violent death and hockey scores

    Isn't it also ironic that tragedies have been reduced to old newspapers stuffed in a closet? Also look at the last few lines of the poem.


    "In that three foot pile now,
    a dozen airliner crashes,
    one earthquake in Alaska,
    seventeen American soldiers
    face down in Asian mud.

    I could go on enumerating
    like newsprint-we record
    violent death&hockey scores
    &keep the front room neat"
