The Pennycandystore Beyond The El

Lawrence Ferlinghetti

The pennycandystore beyond the El
is where i first 
                fell in love
                           with unreality
Jellybeans glowed in the semi-gloom
of that september afternoon
A cat upon the counter moved among
                           the licorice sticks
                and tootsie rolls
           and Oh Boy Gum

Outside the leaves were falling as they died

A wind had blown away the sun

A girl ran in
Her hair was rainy
Her breasts were breathless in the little room

Outside the leaves were falling
                     and they cried
                               Too soon! too soon!
