one-line linked haiku   january 4-february 27 2003


stapled

stapled to another tree another child missing in the park
on his way to san quentin to jerk off
discounts on bruised bananas next to the rotting vegetables
fresh snow on the getting-even-older hills

leftovers reheated even the after-dinner conversation
a guy's 'freedom fries' to diss the french

late february iris tips in a second push toward the end of purple
seeing thru apache tears after one more tumble
temporary power failure in the valley the power failure at duke
penis envy   sometimes   yes   there i said it
change of scenery changes back no chance of being hung out to dry
the waiting list for rehab has a waiting list has a...
