It is much easier to earn a lot of money than to find a bosom friend.

MEMBER’S POEM: A FRIEND

A faithful friend is hard to find’

Who’ll stand through thick and thin, ]

But  my ‘ ‘dog, ‘Dutch,

‘ is just ‘the kind

Who’d do that sort of thing.

She’s just a ‘Cairn terrier pup,

‘ As full of mischief as can, be.

With ears and tail cocked up so bold

As straight as one can see.

Two gleaming eyes, a cold, ‘wet ‘nose,

She stands there all agog,

A tiny bark, a wagging- tail

And that is ‘Dutch,’ my dog.

“Walk the Bowery under the El at night and all you feel is a sort of cold guilt. Touched for a dime, you try to drop the coin and not touch the hand, because the hand is dirty; you try to avoid the glance, because the glance accuses. This is not so much personal menace as universal — the cold menace of unresolved human suffering and poverty and the advanced stages of the disease alcoholism.”
― E.B. White, Here Is New York

while the dark flanks tic and shudder a collective dream of the herd. Something in me envies their stillness waiting for the simultaneous moment when they will lower their heads in the frost’s silence and kiss the ground.
