 …Words in my mouth are   astonished;                             the sky appears   in a space I’d forgotten   was there..winding stairs in Meissen

…Words in my mouth are

the sky appears
in a space I’d forgotten

Come you, cartoonists,
Hang on a strap with me here
At seven o’clock in the morning
On a Halsted street car.

Take your pencils
And draw these faces.
