               THE POOL PLAYERS.
               SEVEN AT THE GOLDEN SHOVEL.

We real cool. We
Left school. We

Lurk late. We
Strike straight. We

Sing sin. We
Thin gin. We

Jazz June. We
Die soon.

Because the only hidden meaning of things
Is that they have no hidden meaning at all:
That is stranger than all the strangeness.
