if I suffer at this
typewriter
think how I’d feel
among the lettuce—
pickers of Salinas?
I think of the men
I’ve known in
factories
with no way to
get out—
choking while living
choking while laughing
at Bob Hope or Lucille
Ball while
2 or 3 children beat
tennis balls against
the wall.
some suicides are never
recorded.
