In his rare idle moments Svevo,
Assistant to the God of Penn Station,
Has been setting the god’s dreams
To music. (The God of Penn Station
Never sleeps; Svevo dreams for him).
The ghosts who have been waiting
For the 7:43 B & O Express to Chicago
Since October 1, 1926 have begun
To sing some of the catchier tunes.
This unnerves the more sensitive
Nowaday trainmen and commuters.
