Poems for Poetry Month

I tell other people to write, write, write, even if it’s practice rather than product. And here’s what happens when I tell myself that. Probably these are more dabbles than haiku, but they are of that family. I’m flummoxed with the spacing, so pretend they are single spaced.

Totally modern

woman with a phone, no calls

Smartest phone of all


It’s hair dye or else

new brand of agent orange

That hair could kill us


Cold bottled water

thirst quenching throw away

Plastic assassin


Dying of boredom

killing time again today

Guilty as charged


Reader gasping hard

near me in the coffee shop

takes my breath away
