Sign Inventory 3, Week 3 (Dan Albergotti's "Lessons of th Elements: Air"

  • The specific title of this poem is "Air" but the first line of the poem makes me as the reader assume the speaker is talking about going under water. Even though the speaker did not say "water", I automatically thought water.
  • Air seems to be the element that the speaker wants to save him from "drowning".
  • The poet establishes a struggle in the life of the speaker. "I was an old man drowning/in his hospital room, going down".
