January 22*

Mt Baker and the Sisters

the violent thrust
of mt baker
                    flanked by
                                  the ever-attendant sisters
                                  the litter of the cascades

          now the spreading foundation
          of our sunrise vista

secured, calmed
by thirty foot blanket
                                  of snow
