And The Moon And The Stars And The World

Long walks at night--
that's what good for the soul:
peeking into windows
watching tired housewives
trying to fight off
their beer-maddened husbands.

this is good but it is short im sorry it doesnt need my help
What a long and pretty title for such a short and ugly poem! I agree with Sylvia Frances..... Disappointing.
He is good at the art of wheeling loveliness on its hock and planting the reader in the reality of a different world. Sad the views of battered neighborhoods and their battered residents
sad and true statement about the state of society.
Love, tiredness, and night- wonderful poem. Voted 10.
