Some Haiku

some are

fighting
poseidon

sparrows

§

year of the ox i swallow

§

on the way
    to becoming a wave
i resurrect the moon

§

crocus
just an inch long
equation

§

i keep thinking more transparent than water

§

on the skin of
a woman a woman
by herself

§

for hanging a mask—
voices above
the white clouds

§

slow at first
the city
lunging for the insekt

§

the distant color of the world i telephone raw flesh

§

a free range
chicken

the slippery
edge

of a park
ing lot
