Island Man Analysis

NOTE: YOU MUST VIEW COMMENTS  ON DOCUMENT (it's edited in that way, to show up comments)

This is very similar to my original cluster document, but as part of my revision I tend to go over things so this is just a rerun of this poem; the difference being i've added a table considering the tone, ideas, imagery etc. Enjoy, let me know what you think.

First 119 words of the document:

Island Man
(for a Caribbean island man in London
who still wakes up to the sound of the sea)
and island man wakes up
to the sound of blue surf
in his head
the steady breaking and wombing
wild seabirds
and fishermen pushing out to sea
the sun surfacing defiantly
from the east
of his small emerald island
he always comes back groggily groggily
Comes back to sands
of a grey metallic soar
to surge of wheels
to dull north circular roar
muffling muffling
his crumpled pillow waves
island man heaves himself
Another London day
