Haiku

 

bar doors
open and close
a whiff of smoke

 

 

imagining his voice
I lol
email punch line

 

 

a din of swifts
lifts off the naked oak
into

 

 

NO TRESPASSING
a butterfly
ignores the chain

 

 

thunderstorm on summer pavement
gives up its ghosts

 

 

on the sidewalk home
careful not to break
her motherís back

 

 

on the steering wheel
of my Volkswagen van
an old manís hands

 

 

gone before the cameraís the dolphinís tail click

 

 

one-ring circus
a blind woman asks
what's that smell

 

 

beachfront diner
the ceiling fan stirs
in my spoon
