Stripes by Carl Sandburg
POLICEMAN in front of a bank 3 A.M. â€¦ lonely.
Policeman State and Madison â€¦ high noon â€¦ mobs â€¦ cars â€¦ parcels â€¦ lonely.
Woman in suburbs â€¦ keeping night watch on a sleeping typhoid patient â€¦ only a clock to talk to â€¦ lonesome.
Woman selling gloves â€¦ bargain day department store â€¦ furious crazy-work of many hands slipping in and out of gloves â€¦ lonesome.
