some haiku for a new year


wheel of sparrows
on birdseed ensō
I poured out back



winter laid at the mercy
of the spring

Lizzie Borden



trees stood side by side
a hundred and twenty years
no touching


car on cinder blocks
cat maternity ward
window down to flirt



moon spent the night
at your place one spring night
lost its car keys



a new year’s door
propped open for guests
fog comes in



these stairs to subway

people the fog descending

to ride in human light



the moon
forgets where it lives
stops me to ask



dreams make a movie
of things unmovielike
unhand me, it says



enter stagnant pond
to gleam as emeralds
duckweed jeweled necklace



trees pencil the highway
no one around for miles
ideas flock



birdseed ensō
in galactic spiral
poured from Big Gulp cup
