Poetry Friday: Under a Hat Rim

December 1st, 2006 (11:25 pm)

Current Mood: hungry
Current Song: Nothing Wrong by Jimmy Eat World

While the hum and the hurry
Of passing footfalls
Beat in my ear like the restless surf
Of a wind-blown sea,
A soul came to me
Out of the look on a face.

Eyes like a lake
Where a storm-wind roams
Caught me from under
The rim of a hat.
      I thought of a midsea wreck
      and bruised fingers clinging
      to a broken state-room door.

-- Under a Hat Rim by Carl Sandburg
