Poem No. 3 (for Beckett) by Marc Isaac Potter

“He was listening in the dusk … listening so intently that he did not hear her enter.“ ( from short fiction “Assumption” in the book The Complete Short Prose 1929- 1989 [ pg 5 ] by Samuel Beckett.

The pancake syrup bottle


For its emptiness.

Long ago a clipper ship

Passed through its delicious bay.

Walnuts sailing through

Early morning of the Day.

He was listening

.In the early morning

For the rudders of the Walnuts

to scrap against the pancakes.
