Her properties, like her of course & frisky & new:
A stale cake sold to kids, a 7-foot weed
Inside in the Great Neck night,
A record (‘great’), her work all over as u-
Sual rejected. She odd in a bakery.
The owner stand beside her
And she have to sell to the brother & sister jumping
Without say ‘One week old.’ Her indifference
To the fate of her manuscripts
(which flash) to a old hand is truly somefing.
I guess: she’ll take the National Book Award
Presently, with like flare & indifference.
A massive, unpremeditated, instantaneous
Transfer of solicitude from the thing to the creature
Henry sometimes felt.
A state of chancy mind when facts stick out
Frequent was his, while that this shrugging girl,
Keen, do not quit, he knelt.
(Having so swiftly, and been by, let down.)
