duck duck duck seagull

pierre stands behind
to the right favorite spot
two inches behind

how do you know him
because all ducks look alike
he will push your knee

game that children play
taking bread from my fingers
every other duck

saltwater swimming
paddling their feet while eating
suddenly seagulls

crash landing flapping
scare everyone taking bread
away darling ducks

motionless afraid
ducks pretend they are statues
looking for hitchcock

i am so afraid
of him even though i’ve never
seen his movies

i imagine this
ducks are imagining too
unfriendly seagulls

no they aren’t imagining
ducks experiencing
seagulls pecking


john writes friends at work
december i’m at the beach
seventy seven

of course jealousy
then everyone grows colder
i explain the wind

13 m.p.h.
ten day forecast is shocking
checks out on their phones

have i turned into
weather channel ask bitter ben
he will tell you

why do we yell fore
golf course hit on the noggin
look ahead beware

  1. Just laughing so hard at this, miss errin. This and haiku tv had me rolling. Jon S. loves ducks. ducks love Jon — not so much. “Fore.”- great point. Gidget and The Tudors and Ray and sand scrawls, great stuff. Peace.

  2. Statues make you think of Hitchcock? Hmmm… all so rollicking and you need to get these published and out there with David Letterman or someone who would appreciate their wit and win your fortune, girl!
