Overflowing Gutters by William Wright, Jr.


The world

Overflowed with rage

Unleashed in panicked streams

For the gutters of his mind


And all too soon

He staggered

In the curves of his youth


On the fumes of mankind


In his hollow gaze

Was the stroll of kin

For whom he lovingly strained

From infernal distress


All too soon he was crushed

In the surge

In the foam of the world


And boiling with strife
