The Man Who Thought He Was Jack Dempsey (1926)
larrylark

A house wrapped up in shiny brown paper,
 1
with extra layers shrouding each window.
 2
Inside we lay trembling in stiff cardboard boxes,
 3
while he fought shadows and called himself Dempsey.
 4
 
 
Who would have thought after all this time
 5
that the house would be gone, part of life's pantomime.
 6
The brown wrapping paper that covered our feet
 7
swirling endlessly round in this still silent street.

is the subject becoming reclusive regarding cardboard windows
 — rivergood

zis you lark? smells brown paper baggy for sure.  lay is lie (line 3), i suppose some people use lay in that way but i am dismayed when i see it. line 8, you have in in, wee typo there.

bit of dissociation going on with this man i think.  nice poem, sometimes it's just the brown bag of life.
