other-line haiku sequence



working mother's night haiku


it would have made sense
the speeding ticket getting home
rather than to work

the almost sanity 5-9
compared to nine to five

tonight just the lifting
of foil from the tv dinner
takes the strength

the painting idea remains
just the painting idea

if there is a moon
she goes unnoticed
the clock set again

the drink of gin
scratches in the journal

the old stereo hardly sounds
the  [unable to read]  of bach
but nonetheless bach
