I trudge through the internet
like a child lost in the city of bright lights.
The flashing neon distracts me from myself.
The world's wedding:
cabbage butterflies
and Queen Anne's lace

walking the dog
two baby rabbits
run for their lives
Shocked by the reflection;
in my mind I'm thin.

checking the animals
to see if
they are still alive--
no a/c
Oven door
the heat pours in
from the outside
Omnipresent and eternal
the egg cooks on the sidewalk

Smooth bowl, a watery blue,
bursting with sunshine--

stifling summer heat
shock of white hair zooms by
young man jogging to work
I work well
under the pressure
of actually having a job.
hazy, hot and humid
the heat wave moves east
counter-intuitive oatmeal
he looks at me
ever hopeful
of love--
the cat

The stifling heat
melts away all ambition
dusty riverbed

The silence grows
like the mold
in the bathroom
we pretend not to see.

As the sun sets
they join us at the car show
the three rabbits

In the Morning Darkness

my fractional brain
rarely functional,
I blindly grope
for coffee
wishing on a star--
i want to go back in time
and choose respect

This is in response to One Single Impression's prompt: respect.
i hear vomiting
the cat waltzes in
to apologize

lit from within
those treasured look on
youthful bride

This is in response to Haiku Bones' prompt: radiant.

He tells us of
the Holocaust,
his daughter
behind him, smoking.
