one-line haiku sequence
november 18 1989


a third sequence for w

sometimes we quote haiku written about you
not a lot has changed

if you go completely mad your sweet rage will not be heard
(you are your own art)

perhaps i might even go mad if i couldn't listen
(or talk to myself)

years ago you said get out of haiku it's male
i stayed with only one foot in

wish i'd called all those scrawlings haiku but didn't
roll over basho & blyth i do now
