Haiku by Chris Gordon


she describes foxes
nursing a small cool stone
in my pocket

reminiscent of
a skull your panties on
a stack of books

shower water in
my tea cup you pinch
my nipple

the heat from your
sunburn wakes me the sheets smell of grapes

your scars white in
the sun a crow hops on
the hot asphalt

opening the paper
someone else's salt
falls into my lap

looking for the cat
we find the shoe you said
I threw in the river

dry in the sink
the tea bag has torn and
leaks a few flakes

on the hard stones
by the river a girl
in her thong

slightly askew one
slat on the blinds lets
in the entire night

flashing in the sun
the wing of a dragonfly
left in a web

the red leaves black in
the sunshine all the baby
pigs in your skirt

the last day in
July I manage with
one less chair

between the empty
bays at the bus station
a white seed drifts
