Dreamed 1968 by Marilyn Stablein

Ants steal the parchment. Rats gnaw the
wooden butter churn. In the monastery kitchen the
Tibetan cook announces the third famine in two
months. We reconsider what's edible then add weather
charts, leather laces and walking sticks to the menu.
Cupboard doors rattle their losses.
Even the ghosts are hungry. There is no peace.
Curses from twenty-nine directions
