Subject(s): Greetings


I saunter along the back streets
and rub shoulders with the crowd.
I clasp their rough hands in mine
and greet them lustily.
I take off my coat
and walk sleeves rolled with them.
I spit into the gutter
and laugh heartily with the logger.

I like such men. They are natural.
I like their easy swing of the hips.
I like their boisterous greeting
and their unassuming loyalty.

It doesn't matter to me where they come from,
if they hail from the slopes of the Andes
or the rough bare hills of Hungary,
the festered centres of populated China,
the teeming ancient, mystical India,
or the cold ice fields of Alaska.
I greet them the same and with immeasurable joy.
