April is National Poetry Month

From the Richard Brautigan Bibliography and Archive:

 


     This poem was found written on a paper bag by Richard Brautigan in a laundromat in San Francisco. The author is unknown. 

By accident, you put
Your money in my
Machine (#4)
By accident, I put
My money in another
Machine (#6)
On purpose, I put
Your clothes in the
Empty machine full
Of water and no
Clothes 

It was lonely.
