                For Louise Crane





In your next letter I wish you'd say

where you are going and what you are doing;

how are the plays and after the plays

what other pleasures you're pursuing:



taking cabs in the middle of the night,

driving as if to save your soul

where the road gose round and round the park

and the meter glares like a moral owl,



and the trees look so queer and green

standing alone in big black caves

and suddenly you're in a different place

where everything seems to happen in waves,



and most of the jokes you just can't catch,

like dirty words rubbed off a slate,

and the songs are loud but somehow dim

and it gets so teribly late,



and coming out of the brownstone house

to the gray sidewalk, the watered street,

one side of the buildings rises with the sun

like a glistening field of wheat.



--Wheat, not oats, dear. I'm afraid

if it's wheat it's none of your sowing,

nevertheless I'd like to know

what you are doing and where you are going.
