the villages of fifty years ago

interest has disappeared

possibly, grandmother

 

by fitting thoughts

to be sure

 

unsightly necessaries

 

a time, a key

fiddles and all

every note as if

 

round like a turnstile

vulgar sweaters

make an honest waistcoat

an expression of great sin

 

beginning with six hands down

wearying evaluations

out came blunder

 

upon the crown of his hat
