City, I Have You

far from here, in country sleep
houses and hay-ricks are deaf to street-car clamor
innocent of thirty-foot signs
scything neon shadows through this room
where I am hot and sleepless in my shirt-sleeves.

I would imagine the moon
and sleeping under fruit-trees, but
my radio's short on country airs. No more help

[Hata Bildir]
