Chicago

 “Bragging and laughing that under his wrist is the pulse, and under his ribs the heart of the people,
Laughing!
Laughing the stormy, husky, brawling
of Youth, half-naked, sweating, proud…”

(Poem CHICAGO, Carl Sandburg,
Good morning – America!, Berlin 1948, p.  24)

“I PAINTED on the roof of a skyscraper.Chicago 1509bis19092009 321
I painted a long while and called it a day’s work.
The people on a corner swarmed and the traffic
cop’s whistle never let up all afternoon.
They were the same as bugs, many bugs on their way”

(Poem: People Who Must, Carl Sandburg,
Good morning – America!, Berlin 1948, p.  34).
