The Pennycandystore Beyond The El

Lawrence Ferlinghetti

I am entranced with the way Ferlinghetti is able to compare the ending of a boy's childhood with the ending of summer and the beginning of fall. The boy stands in the candy shop and notices a girl and her body for the first time and her presence seems to fill up the room. Falling in love for this first time can surely feel like unreality.
