haiku: 4 April 2018

harsh wind huffs and puffs
little pig me hides inside
I won’t let it in

haiku 2 April 2018

hawk above highway
grabs small bird in its talons
wings beat back spring wind

haiku: 29 March 2018

birds are still singing

on the first warm night this month
car tires on rainy streets

I can’t see my breath
but I feel as though I can
snoring beside me

POEM: Anichka

Anichka

she burned his books, laughed
as she filmed the fire

she grows more beautiful
with the passage of time

hardened shell a byproduct
of an uncertain past
her mother’s example

the ink on her skin never dries
drips down her fingers

stains the sheets, the carpet
her lips taste of ashes

haiku: 24 March 2018

Orion sits low
spring half-moon spotlights the yard
still can’t see the dog
