William Carlos Williams - Berket And The Stars

A day on the boulevards chosen out of ten years of 
student poverty! One best day out of ten good ones.
Berket in high spirits—"Ha, oranges! Let's have one!"
And he made to snatch an orange from the vender's cart.

Now so clever was the deception, so nicely timed 
to the full sweep of certain wave summits, 
that the rumor of the thing has come down through 
three generations—which is relatively forever!

Who the hell is Berket And he must be gay because he is looking at stars by himslf yea... he is masterbating to the pictures in the sky because he cant get a job, a girlfriend, or even a life he should just kill himself what a failure in life ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.

Steven Fialco from United States
