Gathered in a wood shop
Around first American television
Gasps and murmurs of a group of children
And a Dutch girl.
“Fun with Japanese”
An “ukulele-toting” man, grief-stricken,
To build miniature houses, lights dimmed
“Ene Mene Bu” , saws and hammers,
A radical hair-cut, completely unsupervised.
The unsteady children’s barely taken rooms.
And many writers across the street arrived.
