Favorite haibun of the summer issue:


May is the month of Mary every day in May be sure to wear something blue in Mary’s honor that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection implored thy help or sought thy intercession was left unaided patent leather shoes are not allowed because boys must be kept free from temptation to thee do I come before thee I stand sinful and sorrowful always remember your guardian angel despise not my petitions but in thy mercy hear and answer me

                        meth junkie
                        the baby face
                        in my wallet
