He has, you will find,
two modes only, the chipmunk:
fast-forward; rewind.

    Very natural use of rhyme. Not noticeable but adds to the humour of the haiku. Captures the essence of these little animals.

    The poet, clever in his own right, finds a way to imitate the rhythm of this shroom dream, of a chipmunk, moving, rewinding.

    Honored to be able to publish Paul Muldoon's work here on tinywords. I have a poem by him, "Symposium," that a friend typeset, hanging on the wall of my living room. It is a frequent source of amusement and enjoyment.

    d.f. tweney, I am very curious about which Paul Muldoon poem you have on your living room wall. If you'd share, that would be lovely!
