By Gregory Corso

A favorite doll
Knows the pain of a child's farewell
Buried in the crib in the attic it dies forever
Candy-colors fade

Doll Poem

Long pants lead us elsewhere
And a child's hands are getting hair
Chewed pencils clips pennies in our pockets
Where are they?

Doll Poem

The child's body is longer
Long as the earth
Everybody walks on him, some on wheelchairs
Long mad envious journey
Soda and fig-newtons
Will erupt from the mouth

Doll Poem

Candy-colors they fade
