Again that Hour


Again that hour when taxis start deadheading home
Before the trolley-buses start to run
And snow dreams in a lace of mist drift down
When from asylum. barrack, cell and cheap hotel
All those whose lives were lived by someone else
Come once again with palms outstretched to claim
What rightly never was their own

Nelson Algren

  1. An extreme matching of the photo and the verse! You've done it!
