IV. Poetry: Found Poem
Going over, going over, going over;
one, two, six of them, nine of them, twelve of them,
one and one and another and another and another,
I haven't any friends. That's suppose to prove I'm abnormal.
I am one of the cold hour of a cold morning of a colder year.
I look all around, but there isn't anybody!
Under the microscope, you'd find life under the glass,
streaming past in infinite profusion.
To prove what asses and fools you are.
The good part of dying; when you've nothing to lose,
you run any risk you want.
Like the way the stars looked,
a million of them swimming between the clouds,
like the enemy discs, and the feeling that the sky might fall,
glimmering in the high darkness as quietly as spiders.
What a dreadful surprise?
There are no consequences and no responsibilities.
By the time the consequences catch up with you, it's too late, isn't it?
It's a mystery.
I am arm'd so strong in honesty that they pass by me as an idle wind.
You're not a problem now. . . you always said, don't face a problem.
I've been a fool all down the line.
I can't stay long . . . . .
I'm on my way God knows where.

Independent Reading
'It was a pleasure to burn.
It was a special pleasure to see
things eaten, to see things blackened and changed.' (pg 1)
2. Don't Wake Me Up
Her face was like a snow-covered
island upon which rain might fall, but it felt no rain, over which clouds might pass their moving shadows, but she felt no shadow. There was only the singing of the thimble-wasps in her tamped-shut ears, and her eyes all glass, and breath going in and out, softly, faintly, in and out her nostrils, and her not caring whether it came or went, went of came.' (pg 11)
3. The Monster
'One drop of rain. Clarisse. Another drop. Mildred.
A third. The uncle. A fourth. The fire tonight. One, Clarisse. Two, Mildred. Three, uncle. Four, fire, One, Mildred, two, Clarisse. One, two, three, four, five, Clarisse, Mildred, uncle, fire, sleeping-tablets, men, disposable tissue, coat-tails, blow, wad, flush, Clarisse, Mildred, uncle, fire, tablets, tissues, blow, wad, flush. One, two, three, one, two, three! Rain. The storm. The uncle laughing. Thunder falling downstairs. The whole world pouring down. The fire gushing up in a volcano. All rushing on down around in a spouting roar and rivering stream toward morning.
"I don’t know anything any more," he said, and let
a sleep-lozenge dissolve on his tongue.' (pg 15)
'He felt it scrabble and seize his leg and stab the needle in for a moment before the fire snapped the Hound up in the air, burst its metal bones at the joints, and blew out its interior in the single flushing of red color like a skyrocket fastened to the street. Montag lay watching the dead-alive thing fiddle the air and die. Even now it seemed to want to get back at him and finish the injection which was now working through the flesh of his leg. He felt all of the mingled relief and horror at having pulled back only in time to have just his knee slammed by the fender of a car hurtling by at ninety miles an hour. He was afraid to get up, afraid he might not be able to gain his feet at all, with an anesthetized leg. A numbness in a numbness hollowed into a numbness . . . ' (pg 114)
'"Now you explain," she said,
"why you haven't any daughters like me, if you love children so much?"
"I don't know."
"You're joking!"
"I mean - " he stopped and shook
his head . . . ' (pg 26)
'"You sound so very old."
"Sometimes I'm ancient. I'm
afraid of children my own age . . . "' (pg 27)
""You can stop counting," she said. She opened the
fingers of one hand slightly and in the palm of the hand was a single slender object.
An ordinary kitchen match.
The sight of it rushed the men out and down away
from the house. Captain Beatty, keeping his dignity, backed slowly through the front door, his pink face burnt and shiny from a thousand fires and night excitements. God, thought Montag, how true! Always at night the alarm comes. Never by day! Is it because the fire is prettier by night? More spectacle, a better show? The pink face of Beatty now showed the faintest panic in the door. The woman's hand twitched on the single matchstick. The fumes of kerosene bloomed up about her. Montag felt the hidden book pound like a heart against his chest.' (pg 36)
'Montag only said, "We never burned right..."
"Hand it over, Guy," said Beatty with a fixed smile.
And then he was a shrieking blaze, a jumping,
sprawling, gibbering mannikin, no longer human or known, all writhing flame on the lawn as Montag shot one continuous pulse of liquid fire on him. There was a hiss like a great mouthful of spittle banging a redhot stove, a bubbling and frothing as if salt had been poured over a monstrous black snail to cause a terrible liquefaction and a boiling over of yellow foam. Montag shut his eyes, shouted, shouted, and fought to get his hands at his ears to clamp and to cut away the sound. Beatty flopped over and over and over, and at last twisted in on himself like a charred wax doll and lay silent.' (pg 113)
'The sun burnt every day. It
burnt Time . . . Time was busy burning the years and the people anyway, without any help from him. So if he burnt things with the firemen and the sun burnt Time, that meant that everything burnt!' (pg 134)
'Montag said, "I've been
a fool all down the line. I can't stay long. I'm on my way to God knows where."' (pg 124)

III. Fact or Fiction Connection
"His wife stretched on the bed, uncovered and cold, like a body displayed on the lid of a tomb, her eyes fixed to the ceiling by invisible threads of steel, immovable. And in her ears the little Seashells, the thimble
radios tamped tight, and an electronic ocean of sound, of music and talk and music and talk coming in . . . ' (pg 76)
