Eli Siegel

(16 August 1902 - 8 November 1978 / Latvia)

Somewhere This

Trees standing in rain;
Footfalls on the pavement, feet crushing leaves;
A little girl leaving her house;
The moon, barely to be seen, shining dully in the gray sky;
A cry from somewhere;
A man scolding his wife, and being heard outside;
A man going into a library;
A shout from somewhere.
'Chicken I want,' says someone near.
