Analysis of Ted Hughes poem

    I'm not too sure of the meaning of this poem. What is your interpretation of the symbolism and meaning of this poem? It's kind of interesting.

    That Moment

    When the pistol muzzle oozing blue vapor
    Was lifted away
    Like a cigarette lifted from an ashtray

    And the only face left in the world
    Lay broken
    Between hands that relaxed, being too late

    And the trees closed forever
    And the streets closed forever

    And the body lay on the gravel
    Of the abandoned world
    Among abandoned utilities
    Exposed to infinity forever

    Crow had to start searching for something to eat.
