I love the concept...that all the good times and bad which go with midnight
are Pavolvian remembered by the big midnight bell of the tenth street
church. Overlaid by the knowledge that the bell, like the writer is a
refugee from a war torn Europe. Love it. This poem could only have been
written after midnight, in a cheap hotel, with a half finished bottle on
the desk, and only two cigarettes left in the pack.
