towards anyone that reads it since there isn’t any gender description found. As for the rest of the poem, it appears to show some kind of theme with the repetition of the word “we” (3-9) which is found at the end of nearly every single line of the poem. This gives me the idea that maybe identity plays as a role in this poem to show that maybe this individual is deciding whether they truly want to be a part of this group or not. This group that I’m seeing in this poem seems rather rebellious in my perspective. In the line “We Sing sin,” (7) gives me the assumption that this group of individuals are rejoicing or possibly accepting the fact that they sin in their lives. Then lastly the poem ends with the line “Die Soon” (10). This is the part of the poem I find the most
difficult with its meaning of those words. I can’t decide if death for them is seen as a positive thing or negative thing. Maybe Brooks left that for us, the readers, to interpret on our own. Overall, I thought this was an interesting poem. It made me realize that poetry can be so powerful no matter what the length it may be.
