File1:

Every morning, my grandmother cleaned the Fischer stove
in the back of the trailer, lifted as in a shovel, careful

not to spill the white-gray dust, Precious, she said, her breath
smoking in the cold. Precious in winter's first lavender

not-quite-light--and you could smell it, the faintest acrid hint
of ash, a crispness calling you from bed. You could watch her

cap it in a chicory coffee can to stack among other, back bent
from a long-gone fever. For the garden in the spring, she said.

File2:

Two men share
one tooth. From

one tooth the men
predict the world.

Thank you! or
we would not exist.

Two men and one
tooth is not a problem.

One man is wide
and one man is sober.

Sometmes the men are
the same. Little toot

File3:

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I;ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if i perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice
