Dreaming No. 13
by Linda Newman Woito

She was in a flummery no a nunnery no
a ramshackle house someone forgot to burn
last century yes that's where she was in each
and every dream she remembered that week
and the farm was there in snow and the prairies
were there and Holstein cows were there needing
milking, and she was there in her high-wader
boots plowing through cow-dung, and isn't that
the way it is, isn't that the way.
