The Descent of Winter: 10/29

Georges Braque, Woman with a Guitar

 The justice of poverty
  its shame its dirt
are one with the meanness
  of love

its organ in a tarpaulin
  the green birds
the fat sleepy horse
  the old men

the grinder sourfaced
  hat over eyes
the beggar smiling all open
  the lantern out

and the popular tunes——
  sold to the least bidder
for a nickel
  two cents or

nothing at all even
  against the desire
forced on us
