Hipsters - Moyshe Nadir

hipsters*


they sit in pairs and throuples.

and chatter, chatter, chatter.

sadness sits between them.

and looks them in the eye.


they sit in pairs and throuples.

and sing, and laugh, and natter.

depression sits between them.

and looks them in the eye.


they sit in pairs and throuples.

and drink and drink and drink.

death sits between them.

and looks them in the eye.


*Originally titled bohemer (Bohemians),

from nayste verk IV, (New York: Freiheit Publishing co., 1932)
