Book Description Harper Perennial Modern Classics, 1999. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: A Street in Bronzeville to David and Keziab Brookskitchenette buildingWe are things of dry hours and the involuntary plan, Grayed in, and gray. "Dream" makes a giddy sound, not strong Like "rent," "feeding a wife," "satisfying a man." But could a dream send up through onion fumesIts white and violet, fight with fried potatoesAnd yesterday's garbage ripening in the hall, Flutter, or sing an aria down these rooms Even if we were willing to let it in, Had time to warm it, keep it very clean, Anticipate a message, let it begin? We wonder. But not well! not for a minute! Since Number Five is out of the bathroom now, We think of lukewarm water, hope to get in it. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0060931744
