marlene mountain
other-line sequences
c 1972

as is



in the middle

in the middle of the acres
not wanting to own
but to belong

running down
into the 'holler'
puffing out of it

late afternoon
coming upon a rusty still
with axe slits

clouds below
the near-by mountain
remembering japan

on the hill side
clouds come down
mingle with chimney smoke
