I chose this poem because I think it really embodies the idea of the chapter: to capture a moment, especially of the natural world, and transcend it into a human subject experience. He describes October as if it has a tint of red and almost breathing with a consciousness. The inanimate intangible feel of October is captured in a world of its own in the poem
So I kind of understood indirection to be sort of metaphorical speak or a way of writing a poem in which emotions are understood but not explicitly stated. I chose this poem because it seems to be using phrases like "When the city is rotting" and "Feathered language / Heavy as freedom" to convey emotion without explicitly stating what that emotion is.
