Shirt | Carl Sandburg

I remember once I ran after you and tagged the fluttering      shirt of you in the wind. Once many days ago I drank a glassful of something and      the picture of you shivered and slid on top of the stuff. And again it was nobody else but you I heard in the      singing voice of a careless humming woman. One night when I sat with chums telling stories at a      bonfire flickering red embers, in a language its own      talking to a spread of white stars:                          It was you that slunk laughing                          in the clumsy staggering shadows.
