Gordon Square

A Turkish cigarette in Gordon square
The daffodils are very good this year
Less profit so the growers
Are unhappy, as I hear.
Among the flowers
And the cherry blossom
The girls, the students,
Someone’s daughters
Not included
Among those good things
Provided for me
By those benevolent
So long ago
Their own objectives,
Doubtlessly conflict,
And moving on
From those past years
When I was here
The meanings that attached
To hashish smoke
All I need now is
Just the spring itself
The not forbidden
Daffodils and springtime cheer
That I encounter here.
