The “fly” is a very important part of this poem. Dickinson gives this insignificant insect, so much more meaning, than what it usually has. This is shown in the first stanza when Dickinson states, “I heard a fly buzz - When I died.” also when she says in the third stanza, “ - and then it was - There interposed a Fly.” This demonstrates how she is using the fly as a symbol for the speakers soul.

First and foremost, it keeps you out of trouble. In other words it makes you more respectable.
