The poet chooses to elucidate the image of Saint Apollinaire En Class in 'Lune de Miel'. One would love to explore more of such images as are described at some length. Here is another :
"certain half-deserted streets,
The muttering retreats
Of restless nights in one-night cheap hotels
And sawdust restaurants with oyster-shells:
Streets that follow like a tedious argument
Of insidious intent
To lead you to an overwhelming question …"
The amount of pain the poet took to elaborate on them underscores their crucial nature apropos the implicit/explicit design of his poetry.
