Early Morning Writings

The title of this post is also the title of the poem from which have been lifted the stanzas below.  (The poem is from a collection, The Happy Birthday of Death, by Gregory Corso.)  Not representative of Corso's style, the excerpts, numbered 5 and 6 in the poem,  nonetheless caught my attention.

                              5

The taxi stops at the 42nd Street library
---I don't understand


                              6

Two men look into each others eyes
---one shoe is missing
