Smog. In front of the Philadelphia Railway-Station gate
crowded scene. Colors: dirty brown and grey.
Man in woollen jacket wearin’ dark glasses.
Filthy hair. Carryin’ wooden box before his belly.
Is sellin’ shoe-cream. Flexible tube with
coal-miners lamp is attached to the box.
Me I’m noticing from the caf opposite street.
Lookin’ through the window with cast-iron ornament frame.
Stickers glued to the glass in primary colors say:
“Psychedelic food”. And the man is walkin’ up and down,
before and behind a dark lantern post.
Nearly colorless people moving in all directions.
