    If we look at line 4 (Headpiece filled with straw) we’ll notice the author highlights this part of the body as the one `stuffed´, and considering the headpiece as the representation of the mind, we’ll assume that these two verses have a symbolic, figurative meaning: the hollow men –who the speaker belongs to (We are)- are fulfilled with.
