The title of this poem, "The Collar", is an appropriate symbol that represents the relationship depicted in the poem, in many ways. The symbol creates this allusion that the minister's collar is choking him like a prison collar, implying that he is restricted from the joys of life do to his current job. The quote- "My lines and life are free, free as the road, loose as the wind, as large as store. Shall I be still in suit?" expresses that this life of freedom is one that he wants to live but he is held back by the image of how people expect him to be, being a minister. This relationship of wanting to have fun and enjoy life is being suffocated or choked by the realization that there is a reputation that has to be kept up.
