Carl Sandburg - Whirls

NEITHER rose leaves gathered in a jar—respectably in Boston—these—nor drops of Christ blood for a
chalice—decently in Philadelphia or Baltimore.
Cinders—these—hissing in a marl and lime of Chicago—also these—the howling of northwest winds across
North and South Dakota—or the spatter of winter spray on sea rocks of Kamchatka.
