marlene mountain
one-line haiku sequence
november 14 1983


about to

about to go to sleep & nothing said
well who gives a shit anyway
it don't fit no standardized criteria
nothing do if it's a beginning
i've written concrete haiku in cement
feels good to turn off the light

hell you're not even supposed to say dang in haiku
do you know 237 marines got blown up shh
oh gosh i mean frog cloud butterfly violet prairie
but that guy hit that old lady & . . . hush
see smell hear taste ah haiku
