Provisions: 1

(East of Coulee City, Washington)

Provisions: 1

The way one passport-poses.

Sliced brown bread on a plate.
A plate with a hairline crack.

The furry girl in the corner
says she loved a mountaineer.
Previous lives.

Telephone gestures....

I can still remember....
How natural to fall asleep
to this broken-age phrase.

My weakness for oration.

She stretched out.
Lovely chestnut-ebony braids.
Waitress apron.

No, I thought,
we shall only have the drive.

Canned baking apples.
As volcanic ash softly falls.

(East of Coulee City, Washington)


As work continues on Provisions, it shall be done in the coming weeks in silence... without further blog entries.

Perhaps Provisions will never be completed.

Perhaps the poem will eventually only exist on a few dozen sheets of paper kept in a cardboard box.  No matter.

For now, the hope is that you, kind reader, might kindly receive Provisions: 1.

Perhaps one day the entire poem, all of Provisions will be contained within a chapbook.

Towards the blessings of... silence.
