STUDY FOR A GEOGRAPHICAL TRAIL; 3. WASHINGTON, D.C., by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Don't lose any important papers
Subject(s): Tokyo; Washington, D.c.


Don't lose any important papers.
If they can't trace you to paper
you're lost. When I traveled alone
in foreign countries the officials
discovered -- before I did -- that
I did not have arms. In Tokyo
soldiers laughed at the holes
in my head.
