Coney Island of the Mind No.20

Coney Island of the Mind No.2o

Narrated by Doritt Carroll

Maryland

The pennycandystore beyond the El

is where I first

                       fell in love

                                        with unreality

Jellybeans glowed in the semi-gloom

of that september afternoon

A cat upon the counter moved among

                                              the licorice sticks

                         and tootsie rolls

            and Oh Boy Gum

 

Outside the leaves were falling as they died

 

A wind had blown away the sun

 

A girl ran in

Her hair was rainy

Her breasts were breathless in the little room

 

Outside the leaves were falling

                                  and they cried

                                                       Too soon! too soon!
