In the Mountains of Southern Oregon Legs Out of My Ordinary Way


RICHARD ALAN BUNCH
In the Mountains of Southern Oregon
   With their different layers of shade, the mountains of southern Oregon tuck behind one another in the orphic light.   Pointed treetops puncture foothills, cut into a graying base, suggesting how small the houses are.   A flotilla of golf maintenance cars trim the fairways, making them more fair?   A grassy odor tingles the air.   Horseshoe pit shows wrinkles from last night's match between codgers and young bloods.   Day lilies so still, hold their breath.   Distance in a bluish haze offers an airy summons to enchantments that reveal what uncreated heavens await.

In the Mountains of Southern Oregon Legs Out of My Ordinary Way


AMANDA JOHNSTON 
Legs
My legs demand exercise, restless tap on the carpet. I've been jumping up and down on the kitchen floor 120 times only because it's good for the circulation. My doctor said so, a man who sits behind a desk and appears to have no legs. Transmit a message to my ponies: 'Tonight you can take me for a walk to the bar.'

SUSAN H. CASE
Out of My Ordinary Way
Still there, I saw, long after she worked on them kneeled to groom and though gloved she watched for thorns. Expecting disaster was all that was left at the end. New owners repainted the peeling boards replaced the roof. I guessed fixed the inside too wire, pipe and plaster. Yet there's something to be said for faulty wiring. Not the kind that overwhelms with flames. Should be just enough to fire her up. Keep her lasting longer than expected. See, no madwoman there after all. Just an elderly gardener fussing on her knees next to an aged house.
