Log Cabin Chronicles


To Olga

This is a Waltham gold fob watch,
heirloom from your paternal grandmother, pawned
innumerable times by her contemptible husband
to compensate for income lost
to three day drunks. It bears, inside,
this inscription:
To Olga, Oct 12, 1916

This poem is from Disco Fries/Poutine Amalgam: Pieces Relating to Northern New England and Atlantic Canada and to Various Inhabitants Thereof. Nathaniel Rounds writes in Nova Scotia.
