Carl Sandburg

(6 January 1878 – 22 July 1967 / Illinois)

Jungheimer's - Poem by Carl Sandburg

In western fields of corn and northern timber lands,
They talk about me, a saloon with a soul,
The soft red lights, the long curving bar,
The leather seats and dim corners,
Tall brass spittoons, a nigger cutting ham,
And the painting of a woman half-dressed thrown reckless across a bed after a night of booze and riots.
