  1. This…can read like the suicide of one who is old, one who had lived “so many years.” The body is scathingly referred to as an old swing.

    It can also read like the suicide of one who is young. “Old swing” being the age-old act of suicide by noose, then “so many years hanging” being the victim’s unfulfilled life.
