TIM STALEY – 13 HAIKU

13 HAIKU

 

All the naked women

turned out to be

Barbies on the kitchen floor

 

~

 

The spider grins

when something crashes its web

and breaks its connections

 

~

 

A crystal airway

blocked by a hot dog

collapsed the operation

 

~

 

Alone time

in December

is somber

 

~

 

She slinked

into her boudoir

to barf

 

~

 

The hearty handshakes

at the coming together

of cardiac techs

 

~

 

My friend Gray Ball is gone

his walkie-talkie—channel 6

dead for now

 

~

 

These logs know the drill

blaze—shine—radiate for the

span of my desire

 

~

 

My only message

is slow down

the way you chew

 

~

 

The awful moment

when you must abandon

what you’ve been staring at

 

~

 

There’s your current words

then there’s the brute blur

of their birth shape

 

~

 

My To Do list

has just one thing on it:

make a To Do list

 

~

 

You get to pick

when the eager beaver

meets the mountain lion

~
