Haiku
 

 

 

 

Deborah Finkelstein, US

 

husking corn—
wondering if
he’s really at a meeting

 

 

crowded bar,
a woman whispers in my ear—
missing my wallet

 

 

new flame,
drinking martinis—
thinking about his parents’ divorce

 

 

letter meant for my neighbor—
wondering if he knows
about the cancer

 

 

auditorium applause—
she jumps off his lap,
runs in a circle and barks
