The next image the speaker speaks about is the dinner from the night before. Although her gear is clumsy on land, it is necessary to survive under water. This tool has been used effectively by the poets in order to provide room for consolation. The poem looses this imagery with the sound of the milkman waking her up as the cold morning dawns only to ruin her fantasy dream of the frustration of cleaning up from the night before.
The stairs shake each morning at five o'clock with the arrival of the milkman; each day she has to make the bed, dust the furniture, and look out dirty windows while listening to the leaky faucet. With close inspection of the passage, the ideas of sin and death come to life and they live dark and tortuous lives.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, a writer who lived in the 1800s, reminded Americans of their rights of liberty at a time when many people started to conform to established norms. The next line, Half heresy… the speaker comes back to the present tense of the leaky faucet, noise and dirty windows. Let me explain further in detail, verse 8 reveals, the mental disposition of one who is presently in a state of sin, while in a state of denial. In the second schema the hero goes on a journey where she discovers her true identity, both female and male.

Her father Arnold Rich was a doctor and a pathology professor and her mother, Helen Jones Rich , was a pianist and a composer. In the 1950's a couple living together without being married was frowned upon.
Finally the man in her life is introduced. This implies that the woman feels like she is being judged because of the relationship she is in. Not that at five each separate stair would writhe under the milkman's tramp; that morning light so coldly would delineate the scraps of last night's cheese and three sepulchral bottles; that on the kitchen shelf amoong the saucers a pair of beetle-eyes would fix her own-- envoy from some village in the moldings. One of the main styles of writing used is distinct imagery. These words have been used separately to indicate the challenge faced by the couples as well as those not in relationships.
