the stupids: a coastal not coast clear haiku

~
thirty minute wait
white golf cart disappearing
but where does it go

after the third time
realized silly’s stopping short
real estate office

chef’s carriage stops twice
he’s already mad at her
talking on the phone

now all chairs are full
take five, freeing a table
an interruption

“so how’s your new place
like it better than the lodge
that’s what i’m saying”

interrupt me please
anytime for a haiku
favorite neighbors

all of these people
i’m always the lucky one
man with cigarette

wind my only luck
really didn’t have to run
asthma from jumping

then a dumb lady
asks if she can sit with me
NO she just sits down

grabs a cigarette
and asks can you smoke up here
i shake my head no

with lighter in hand
telling me she probably
shouldn’t smoke either

she heard me coughing
eyes glued to her mean lighter
running far away

was trying to write
about lifeguard blast and shark
she would not allow

insane chattering
her sister and granddaughter
take over table

steals her grandchild’s fries
yells at her for no reason
threatens to hit her

“i will throw this
water bottle at you right now
if you don’t do this ”

she only got worse
thinking that the coast was clear
eating a hot dog

unfortunately
Looney still had cigarette
hand under table

(next new prison book:
‘She Pulled Out A Cigarette
And I Shot Her Dead)’

think before you smoke
make sure no one is around
bullet with your name
