Back Next Darling

"Darling," he said
"The room is filled with gangsters
killers of all sorts
the scum of the earth
slippery deceivers"

"Still it is for the sake
Of the other few
That you are struggling
Upward and inward
To get in?"

"Darling why should we hear of the new
when we have each other?

Irwin R. Shaw - 1990
