marlene mountain
one-line haiku sequence
december 1979



you cup my breasts i tablespoon you
              a late monarch   your fingers slowly find my folds
your kiss on my cloud mountain       moonrise
              mountain tip from mist my clitoris rises to your mouth
the maple just turning i fill my mouth with you
              your sawedoff thumb   deep    deeper     beyond my moon
new moon  you find the blood between us
              i rise from blood and paint myself in the moon
i am my reason for living your love in the falling leaves
              mountain      just the tip of me
as you leave i remain a mountain of folds
