The Bean Eaters

Here is the “The Bean Eaters” Poem by anonymous!

The Bean Eaters:

They eat beans mostly, this old yellow pair.
Dinner is a casual affair.
Plain chip are on plain and creaking wood,
Tin flatware.

Two who are Mostly Good.
Two who have lived their day,
But keep on putting on their clothes
And putting things away.

And remembering . . .
Remembering, with twinklings and twinges,
As they lean over the beans in their rented back room that
is full of beads and receipts and dolls and clothes,
tobacco crumbs, vases, and fringes.
