Cornhuskers/Slants at Buffalo, New York
SLANTS AT BUFFALO, NEW YORK
They too are the dream of a sculptor.They too say: This way! this way!
The middle-class passengers witness low life.The car windows frame low life all day in pictures.
- sell red and green peppers.
The Florida bananas furnish a burst of yellow.The lettuce and the cabbage give a green.
The boys' hands need washing.The boys are glad; they fight among each other.
Then acres of steel rails, freight cars, smoke,
And then...the blue lake shore...Erie with Norse blue eyes...and the white sun.
