    lime quarter

    an icecube collapses

    over jazz

    Its semplicity struck me at once…

  4. Daisy Darlington Says:

    I hear the movement of ice in this tiny poem more clearly than I do any tintinnabulating bells elsewhere! Well done.

    Alan! I am very happy to see your "lime quarter" haiku again. You forgot one publication credit for it however!

    too sore to sleep
    I slouch at the bar
    nursing a Coke

    three seats away
    a man with feverish eyes
    drenches his date
    with fizzless jokes
