Nine Things

Nine Things

It’s night
And a numbered beauty
Lapses at the wind,
Chortles with the
Branches of a tree,

giggles,

Plays shadow dance
With a dead kite,
Cajoles affection
From falling leaves,
And knows four
Other things.
One is the color
Of your hair.



Poem Nine Things - Richard Brautigan
