To a Woman Asleep in a Street-car
By Max Michelson
From “Masks”

WOMAN sleeping in the car—
Strange, aloof and far—
Shall I shake you and tell you
        Who you are?
Wake up and let us speak—        5
Till our hearts are bared to the core,
Till we are a man and a woman no more,
Till we are empty like vases that leak,
        Till we droop and fall,
        Till we are nothing at all.        10
