Any Englishman To His Son

My lad, I like America a lot,
And she can give us much we haven't got.
By all means speak like some Chicago tough
If England's English is not clear enough.
By all means sing the songs of Hollywood
If 'Annie Laurie' is no longer good.
But two small things I must impress on you:
Pray do not jitterbug-AND DO NOT CHEW'.
May 14, 1944

The Doorman And The Dormouse

I have noticed this semester,
that the ant has antennas!
Derek made fun of me
because I didn't know this before!
That rascal deserves to be lashed!
I am aware of antennas!
And this reminds me of a little tale
titled 'the doorman and the dormouse'
for there was a doorman working
in a Chicago building,
who had a dormouse as a pet!

  119.     

Making Rhythmic Memories

Rhythms roaming across the United States, touching
down in New York, Chicago, Texas, Arizona and
landing eventually in California's bright and sunny
shores at the Atlantic Ocean.
Finding rhythms at the beach, zoo, Disneyland, etc.
Wherever people gather to have fun and reminisce.
Making photographic memories to keep with them
forever.
Looking at them in later life when unable to create
any new memories because they're too frail to travel
anymore.

  120.     

Winter On Astor Street

The Gold Coast, Chicago

Beneath the canopy,
a doorman holds
a cast-iron door that lets

an ancient duchess issue.
Swathed in a silver gown
she tugs her sable cape

tight around a tumor
that nice young doctor
will announce tomorrow.
