Yes, being the vagrant and beggar I am,
Is not being a vagrant and beggar -- that's common enough:
It's being isolated in our soul -- that's what being a vagrant is,
It's needing to beg the days to go by and disregard us -- that's what being a beggar is.

Everything else is stupid like a Dostoyevsky or a Gorky.
Everything else is being hungry or having nothing to wear.
And even though that happens, it happens to so many people
Its not worth feeling sorry for those who it happens to.

I'm a vagrant and a hell of a beggar -- that is, in the metamorphic sense,
And I'm curling up in the deepest charity for myself.
