Out of Bronx subway June forest
A blue mallard drums the stream’s reach
Duckling proud crosses lilyleaf
The thinnest of old people watch
And Brooklyn subway, Apt 5J
Dozen young marvelous people
A painter’s birthday,we’re laughing
Real disaster is so near us
My joke on death they sweetly sink
Sunday follows, sleepy June rain
Delighted I carry icecream
A few blocks to my friends’ supper drenched
Baby with my name, old five weeks
I hold after its bath, it looks

from Angel Hair 5, Spring 1968
