the barber shaves
himself

    Barbers strike -
    even some of the teen-agers
    bear beards

    This is simply haiku at its best. The poet allows us to share her insight, beneath the stubble of the barber. This should be considered a classic. Definitely.

    she wears her new shoes

    summer rain -
    the window washer mutters
    in his sleep

    barber's shaky hand -
    sudden thunder
    before the rain
