Lorine Niedecker's Homemade/Handmade Poems

Consider at the outset:
to be thin for thought
or thick cream blossomy

Many things are better
flavored with bacon

Sweet Life, My love:
didn't you ever try
this delicacy--the marrow
in the bone?

And don't be afraid
to pour wine over cabbage


-


Ah your face
but it's whether
you can keep me warm


-


Alcoholic dream
that ran him
[ - - - ] out from home
[ - - - - - ] to return
leaning
like the house
in this old part
[ - - ] of town leaves him
[ - - - - ] grieving:

why

do I hurt you
whom I love?
[ - ] Your ear
[ - - ] is cold!--here,
drink


-


To my pres-
sure pump

I've been free
[ - - - ] with less
[ - - - - ] and clean
I plumbed for principles

Now I'm jet-bound
by faucet shower
heater valve
ring seal service

cost to my little
[ - - ] humming
[ - - - ] water
[ - - - - ] bird


-


Laundromat

Casual, sudsy
social love
at the tubs

After all, ecstasy
can't be constant


-


March

Bird feeder's
[ - - ] snow-cap
[ - - - ] sliding
[ - - - - ] off


-


Something in the water
like a flower
will devour

water

flower
