It is a poem composed by Mark Strand. In the poem the poet wants to keep thing whole. He doesn’t want anything to be broken. He requests for wholeness against the fragmentation that goes on in life. He says that when he is in the field he doesn’t find himself. He looks at different things as parts not as a complete whole. This thing always happens in the world because this is the way of the life. He says when he walks he divides the air but the air comes back to fill the gaps. He says everyone has reason for moving but he moves to keep things whole. A part is meaningless. So, everybody should try to keep things whole.
