Carl Sandburg (1878–1967).  Chicago Poems.  1916.
 
122. Jungheimer’s
 
 
IN western fields of corn and northern timber lands,
  They talk about me, a saloon with a soul,
  The soft red lights, the long curving bar,
  The leather seats and dim corners,
  Tall brass spittoons, a nigger cutting ham,        5
And the painting of a woman half-dressed thrown reckless across a bed after a night of booze and riots.
