The Self-Styled No-Child
In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

The self-styled No-Child
Sets his fedora by the Menorah;

He reads the evening papers by tapers;
He washes his galoshes.

And when a chill sets in, he strokes his chin,
Imagines sleep, and wonders if the fire will keep.

And when his own child cries, he tries
To chime away all Time with nursery rhyme.
