"Lost Boy” tetrastich

And again, again,  I turned into the street,
finding the place  where corners meet,
turning to look again
to see    where Time had gone …

[-- Th. Wolfe, “The Lost Boy” (1937)]

[Note:  Finding “found poetry” in the consistently lyrical work of Thomas Wolfe's prose   is like finding fish in an aquarium; but anyhow, this one’s pretty.]
