a few haiku

with a shrug America turns a pigeon into a dinosaur


tiny flies furiously scrub a knife of light

boulders and other human words twilight as a verb

failing that another body part can be displayed such as the crocus

spring a girl with a hand-written letter on a leash

to be her long tail lost in the Milky Way


the mockingbird says

with its tail

my mouth at right angles to loneliness a little song

animals you see only when they die shorter days

in the days of the shogun everyone had the same ringtone
