haiku hushpuppy

lizard gazing through
you have nothing to fear from me
tiny fellow

save your fear for bird
you hide from him then you run
to catch up with him

haiku hushpuppy
i only wanted six
they gave me seventeen

bird bee me
equidistant fence cement pool
they don’t tell me stories

when birds and bees meet
they’re supposed to talk about
the birds and the bees

solo clear blue pool
she has never sung before
and forgot the words

“don’t worry be happy”
twice the size of other pools
warm pool cool wind

middle name worry
entire pool audience
splash yourself clapping

hardee’s hamburgers
charcoal broiled burgers hot dogs
saltwater fragrance

you can see the wind
blowing the smoke in the
opposite direction

yet entire pool
smells like hardee’s hamburgers
superhuman sense

three footlong hot dogs
taking up most of the space
in my mind and grill

  1. I know a couple of dogs that will be happy to relieve you of “three footlong hot dogs
    taking up most of the space in my mind and grill” and “saltwater fragrance”–nothing like it in the world!
