marlene mountain
one-line haiku sequence
july & august 1981

speed trap

speed trap just trying to get along just trying to get home
        a man yells at a man in a truck
alone the onions eaten the dishes cleared away
        airport a big wave at the wrong kid
the heat anything between two pieces of bread
        dulled by the art film
premenstrual a deeper look into the night sky
        alldaytyping neck
to have weeds to pull to unwind
        bach begun again
rhythm of his mother's womb
        what is women's haiku
the raped woman threatened
