For Marcia

Because you always have a clock

strapped to your body, it's natural

that I should think of you as the

correct time:

with your long blonde hair at 8:03,

and your pulse-lightning breasts at

11:17, and your rose-meow smile at 5:30,

I know I'm right.

.: :.

I\'ve always liked this one. In his organization of Marcia by the time on her watch, the poem demonstrates a recurrent theme for Brautigan--our need to assign meaning and try to find order in life. But what really works for me in this piece is a simple word pairing, another of his favorite techniques, resulting in a tightly bound, slightly suprising metaphor: \"rose-meow.\" Both the rose and a cat are beautiful and often associated with feminity and fecundity. Both have sharp pointy aspects that can inflect a painful bite if mishandled. Apparently, these are qualities shared by Marcia. It also reminds me of some lines of the Persian Sufi poet, Jalaluddin Rumi”
