one-line linked haiku    march 17 1990 - october 23 1992



news headline about sonia: forget lib, she wants anarchy
planet of the apes asunderground a wimmin's place
unable to grow a baby he's chosen war is hell of a good time
battle of the bulge in his pants fading
secretary's day a flower and more dicktation for the typissed
stuck in the missionary position for wages less than sin

touching myself in the mirror a linked form endangered
less energy now to push beyond 'signs' to quit
not in kansas anymore belly up in the poppies deep sleep
propaganda treekilling a career to hell with owls
soldiers count grains of sand wise men flee
i have come to destroy the works of god
paper chase at the Wailing Wall missives falling through the cracks
sex tourism yeah tour them jerks off the pretty face of earth
before leaving her lover drops a quarter--flash
not over the blues i find a hole with a green sock to it
new world order red sand pouring through the hourglass
friendly fire from smart (ass) bombs

home front dangerous cholesterol level the poems hang inside
winterful of guilt spring cleaning the vacuum breaks
both right hands washed 100s of 1000s cling to his 'slippery slope'
straight flush one tied behind her back didn't stop her
embarrassed again to admit i write haiku with no chance to explain
just to reach out and touch the ankles of the old guard
don't call it spinning a web to trap flies call it networking
you're very welcome i could not have made it this far without myself
all wrapped up in her mother lays the flag on the coffin
red dot on white ache of clean heculture to control dirty shenature
explaining to my daughter the shape of the tampon

turning my head away from the homeless woman she laughs
still able to admit anger is art
content in a room with a view my grandmother dying
hard now to say earth fire water air
now's the time haiku spelled backwards is not 'renku'
new paintings: femail boxes and junk male

1m) sonia johnson 12m) after jesus: 'i have come the destroy
the works of the female' as quoted by clement of alexandria in the
'gospel according to the egyptians,' r. e. witt, 'isis in the greco-roman
world,' london, thames and hudson, 1971
