So we are taking off our masks, are we, and keeping

our mouths shut? as if we'd been pierced by a glance!



The song of an old cow is not more full of judgment

than the vapors which escape one's soul when one is sick;



so I pull the shadows around me like a puff

and crinkle my eyes as if at the most exquisite moment



of a very long opera, and then we are off!

without reproach and without hope that our delicate feet



will touch the earth again, let alone "very soon."

It is the law of my own voice I shall investigate.



I start like ice, my finger to my ear, my ear

to my heart, that proud cur at the garbage can



in the rain.  It's wonderful to admire oneself

with complete candor, tallying up the merits of each



of the latrines. 14th Street is drunken and credulous,

53 rd tries to tremble but is too at rest.  The good



love a park and the inept a railway station,

and there are the divine ones who drag themselves up



and down the lengthening shadow of an Abyssinian head

in the dust, trailing their long elegant heels of hot air



crying to confuse the brave "It's a summer day,

and I want to be wanted more than anything else in the world."
