Volume 51.1
Winter - Spring


haiku sequence


           State Fair

the older woman
winning the barrel race

amidst the crowd
the scent of a single rose
people's choice

funhouse mirror laughing we forget the tumors

all the people
gawking at the giant pumpkin
a horsefly claims it

      the tilt-a-whirl his lopsided grin

the aging carny
takes another ticket
faded tattoo

the roller coaster's
ups and downs
autumn sunset
