Scott Metz


some haiku



where the ocean ends caterpillar wind

*

she stepped on the moth
but it got up
and conquered the forest

*
the paper factory
     tossed into a web
of complicity
*

what i’ve drawn in the center might be existential wind

*

i
hold dusk’s breath
until i
hear drums

*

factory lights
migrating
towards me

*

when i have
to be a crow
on main st.

*

the sound of an airplane
evaporating inside
the shadow of an earring

*

mossth

*

why did you become a pigeon gray dream
