Just one more day
A yellow daisy day
A too hot sidewalk, barefoot day
A last mosquito day
A sunset at the beach day
One scorcher day to hold midwinter
At bay


Marcie Rendon, White Earth Anishinabe: Saint Paul was her first home in the urban area in the infamous Selby-Dale area of the late ’60s, early ’70s. American Indian Movement (AIM) and Marvin Gaye combined to raise her poetic awareness. Now the Sunday Saratoga poets help nudge her words onto the page. Marcie is published in many Native anthologies.
