One of my favorite DS's, this one, despite the fact that the foreign phrases have been giving me a hard time. I know JB read Latin, but can't find most of these words in a Latin dictionary; nor do they seem to be German. Not having studied either, I could be wrong of course--anyone able to help? --C

heck, i'm not sure about the language. but the poem seems to be about a "flight from analysis" from what i can tell. Has a lot to do with Henry's desire for solitude, as well as Berryman's desire to be alone when writing. but that didnt help much, did it? oops.
