one-line haiku sequence
september or december 24 1994

hot sparklers

hot sparklers in both legs grin & bear it but not bare it
here i am again a bundle of myself
can't get up on tiptoes as the crow flies to the mailbox
summer blue skies summer blues sky
mental block another letter begins and ends with dear
self-definition gets it done gone
'unrest area' in south africa unrest area in home sweet . . .
cabin fever maybe agoraphobia
far-off and intellectual kigo or female symbols deep within
'hidden' symptoms no need for me to look
worn down from yesterday's and day after tomorrow's pain
nature eats herself
yard serviceberry first again to chase off a few leaves
put out with no idea-painted red output
gullywash inside a detached head silt replaces silt
my abandoned life
