Stripes

Stripes

POLICEMAN in front of a bank 3 A. M. … lonely.
Policeman State and Madison… high noon… mobs… cars… parcels… lonely.

Woman in suburbs… keeping night watch on a sleeping typhoid patient… only a clock to talk to… lonesome.
Woman selling gloves… bargain day department store… furious crazy-work of many hands slipping in and out of gloves… lonesome.



Poem Stripes - Carl Sandburg
