The streets contain a crowd
    Of blind men tapping their way
    By inches—         
    This man to complain to the grocer
    Of yesterday’s cheese,
    This man to visit a woman,
    This man to take the air.
    Am I to pick my way         
   Through these crickets?—
    I, that have a head
    In the bag
    Slung over my shoulder!
    I have secrets        
    That prick
    Like a heart full of pins.
    Permit me, gentlemen,
    I have killed the mayor
    And am escaping from you.       
    Get out of the way!
      (The blind men strike him down with their sticks.)
 Wallace Stevens, Lettre d’un soldat, 1912—1922
