<P>He would leave early and walk slowly<BR>

&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;As if balancing books<BR>

&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;On the way to school, already expecting<BR>

To be tardy once again and heavy<BR>

&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;With numbers, the unfashionably rounded<BR>

&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Toes of his shoes invisible beyond<BR>

The slope of his corporation. He would pause<BR>

&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;At his favorite fundamentally sound<BR>

&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Park bench, which had been the birthplace<BR>

Of paeans and ruminations on other mornings,<BR>

&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;And would turn his back to it, having gauged the distance<BR>

&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Between his knees and the edge of the hardwood<BR>

Almost invariably unoccupied<BR>

&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;At this enlightened hour by the bums of nighttime<BR>

&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;(For whom the owlish eye of the moon<BR>

Had been closed by daylight), and would give himself wholly over<BR>

&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Backwards and trustingly downwards<BR>

&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;And be well seated there. He would remove<BR>

From his sinister jacket pocket a postcard<BR>

&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;And touch it and retouch it with the point<BR>

&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Of the fountain he produced at his fingertips<BR>

And fill it with his never-before-uttered<BR>

&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Runes and obbligatos and pellucidly cryptic<BR>

&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Duets from private pageants, from broken ends<BR>

Of fandangos with the amoeba
