East L.A.
bill

Whisky in Dixie cups
 1
Women with buzz cuts
 2
These- and any one thing
 3
Related to sleep
 4
 
 
You see
 5
I know the midnight sweat
 6
Of August and
 7
I know the spirits
 8
Among the
 9
Eucalyptus leaves
 10
 
 
But it is strange
 11
How all their arms are crossed
 12
Except the man in orange
 13
And the little boy in green
 14

 15
The train howls its whistle
 16
It is my proud and
 17
Shameless grief
 18
 
 
And I wake to sleep
 19
