Life, friends, is boring. We must not say so.
After all, the sky flashes, the great sea yearns,
Bats have no bankers and they do not drink
and cannot be arrested and pay no tax
and, in general, bats have it made.
"A poet is a man speaking to men":
But I am then a poet, am I not?--
Filling her compact & delicious body
with chicken paprika, she glanced at me
only the fact of her husband & four other people
kept me from springing on her
Where did it all go wrong? There ought to be a law
against Henry.
Nothing very bad happen to me lately.
How you explain that?--I explain that, Mr Bones,
I'd take off all my clothes
& cross the damp cold lawn & down the bluff
The world is gradually becoming a place
Where I do not care to be any more.
What he has now to say is a long
wonder the world can bear & be.
