online works

the lecture on Adrienne Rich

standing up at the rally
asking for money    getting it

pouring the blind beans
into the pie crust

waking the wimmin early
in time for    the paper bus

sitting with coffee
reading the left behind book

pecking the type    writer
waiting for the aspirin    grip

getting the telegram
that says   HOLD THE VIOLETS    GONE TO PINE GAP
                WITH THE REST    ITíS HOT HERE
                THINK OF ME
