marlene mountain
one-line haiku sequence
winter 1980


saturday morning

saturday morning the stove waits to be rekindled
old sweater old stove old coldness
unread newspaper something about iran flames
fm the countertenor the crackling poplar
a long weekend beginning to understand wood
getting breakfast feeding the fire
second cup of coffee just sitting just feeling
i move from the stove the cat remains
