A Piece of String (Found Poem)

The peasants and their wives,

the whole body bent forward

at each moment of

their long twisted legs.

Ornamented with little design,

seemed like balloons

ready to carry them off.

Human beings and animals

mixed together.

Lost in the noisy

and slowly moving crowd.

Trying to find the trick in the man

and the flaw in the beast.
