I Live In The Twentieth Century

I Live In The Twentieth Century

I live in the Twentieth Century
And you lie here beside me. You
Were unhappy when you fell asleep.
There was nothing I could do about
It. I felt hopeless. Your face
Is so beautiful that I cannot stop
To describe it, and there’s nothing
I can do to make you happy while
You sleep.



Poem I Live In The Twentieth Century - Richard Brautigan
