by Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)


Remembrance has a Rear and Front --
'Tis something like a House --
It has a Garret also
For Refuse and the Mouse.

Besides the deepest Cellar
That ever Mason laid
Look to it by its Fathoms
Ourselves be not pursued --

This is a typical Emily poem. It starts out well enough, then collapses, becoming incoherent and failing to rhyme. It's unfortunate that she is held in such high esteem. It's even more unfortunate to see people consciously trying to imitate her.
