other-line haiku sequence
c 1972

as is

ex college student

ex college student
moves to the woods
to an old cabin

between the cardboard
& wall
recipes from '34

2 room cabin
where 2 adults
brought up 5 children

in one of the sheds
letters from the army
5c stamps

a clinchfield engine
hanging beside
the old jesus calendar

over the mantle
a tennessee long rifle
newly made

on the wood stove
a pan of beans;
a drink of moonshine

in the yard
an old white pine
growing out of an old tire
