The reader

 

by Wallace Stevens

 

All night I sat reading a book,

Sat reading as if in a book

Of sombre pages.

 

It was autumn and falling stars

Covered the shriveled forms

Crouched in the moonlight.

 

No lamp was burning as I read,

A voice was mumbling, Everything

Falls back to coldness,

 

Even the musky muscadines,

The melons, the vermilion pears

Of the leafless garden.

 

The sombre pages bore no print

Except the trace of burning stars

In the frosty heaven.

LYRICS

Jersey Girl

TOM WAITS

Got no time for the corner boys,

Down in the street makin’ all that noise,

Don’t want no whores on eighth avenue,

Cause tonight I’m gonna be with you.

‘Cause tonight I’m gonna take that ride,

Across the river to the jersey side,

Take my baby to the carnival,

And I’ll take you on all the rides,

Sing sha la la la la la sha la la la.

Down the shore everything’s alright,

You’re with your baby on a Saturday night,

Don’t you know that all my dreams come true,

When I’m walkin’ down the street with you,

Sing sha la la la la la sha la la la.

You know she thrills me with all her charms,

When I’m wrapped up in my baby’s arms,

My little angel gives me everything,

I know…
