    Memories of West Street and Lepke

    Only teaching on Tuesdays, book-worming
    in pajamas fresh from the washer each morning,
    I hog a whole house on Boston's
    "hardly passionate Marlborough Street,"
    where even the man
    scavenging filth in the back alley trash cans,
    has two children, a beach wagon, a helpmate,
    and is "a young Republican."
    I have a nine months' daughter,
    young enough to be my granddaughter.
    Like the sun she rises in her flame-flamingo infants' wear.

    These are the tranquilized Fifties,
    and I am forty. Ought I to regret my seedtime?
    I was a fire-breathing Catholic C.O.,
    and made my manic statement,
    telling off the state and president, and then
    sat waiting sentence in the bull pen
    beside a negro boy with curlicues
    of marijuana in his hair.

    Given a year,
    I walked on the roof of the West Street Jail, a short
    enclosure like my school soccer court,
    and saw the Hudson River once a day
    through sooty clothesline entanglements
    and bleaching khaki tenements.
    Strolling, I yammered metaphysics with Abramowitz,
    a jaundice-yellow ("it's really tan")
    and fly-weight pacifist,
    so vegetarian,
    he wore rope shoes and preferred fallen fruit.
    He tried to convert Bioff and Brown,
    the Hollywood pimps, to his diet.
    Hairy, muscular, suburban,
    wearing chocolate double-breasted suits,
    they blew their tops and beat him black and blue.

    I was so out of things, I'd never heard
    of the Jehovah's Witnesses.
    "Are you a C.O.?" I asked a fellow jailbird.
    "No," he answered, "I'm a J.W."
    He taught me the "hospital tuck,"
    and pointed out the T-shirted back
    of Murder Incorporated's Czar Lepke,
    there piling towels on a rack,
    or dawdling off to his little segregated cell full
    of things forbidden to the common man:
    a portable radio, a dresser, two toy American
    flags tied together with a ribbon of Easter palm.
    Flabby, bald, lobotomized,
    he drifted in a sheepish calm,
    where no agonizing reappraisal
    jarred his concentration on the electric chair
    hanging like an oasis in his air
    of lost connections.... read more »
