Experiment 11

Ever At All

page 340

Ever At All

A thousand dozen genuine people
trod a million streets
link twelve thousand faithful
arms and lips, and yet,
is there genuine love,
A love that stands above the world
that fears dispel, hearts well
up compassion, and understanding
fashion unity?
Mad reckless people fall in love
ashen pale dreary souls
may never wake up to love of life.
Lives slide away,
to and fro daily,
glum in a trolley-bus window.
Much worse than a foggy day
a foggy brain and a drain
on the spirit. Fool and be fooled,
sweat in bed, alone an
insane dread stuffs the
unread unresponsive head;
pass over the heavy grime
unwind a cautious little, who
hang amidst the air?
A mist to clear on fair,
to finer people, winter's sun.
