Loose Library Thoughts

Wedges of unanimous unity with upright inky myths, both real and imagined.

Gazillion sanctimonious crosswords held idle for idols.

Call numbers ringing.  Who will answer?

Funding short, but not the dreams.

One for all and all for one in candid, devious and garrulous dust.

Candid

melt

white terry robe of snow
slowly sliding south
down the shingles

the eave’s nurtured icicles
drip
drip
dripping

white terry robe haunting the kitchen
slowly sliding south
down morning’s conjecture

the counter percolating coffee
drip
drip
dripping

You walk in
Blink
I melt

Good morning, you

Blink

2 haiku/shock

Winter oxygen
Invisible narcotic
Unconfined ether

 

Ultraviolet
Wavelengths tease winter’s self-rule
Eight degree sunshine

Shock

Alpha-bet

A fraternity of letters
binge drinking by night
attending classes by day
carving the campus with syllables

Carve

Arriving?

the night sits
in meditative pose (prose)
on a pillow of
dawn’s insomnia

mournful, but brilliant
he asks
is summer on its way?

Brilliant

1 haiku/funnel

Scheming religion
Meteor through a funnel
Miracle enough

Funnel

1 haiku/allergic

From gilded towers
The allergic potentate
Chokes his sycophants

Allergic

Tupelo Honey

Sweet, the craft of ghosts
the ocean’s hiss
the creaky oak
the novel’s plot.

What funny semantics,
the smell of love poems near
Tupelo honey.

Sticky, like lopsided circumspect.

How droll
the overcast, just a
siege of whitewash
under the sanctimonious blue.

 

 

 

Conversation

Cranky Origami

The wind gossiping
to the tree,
“Your dried leaves are cranky origami.”

The sun complaining
to the moon,
“You’re only half the orb you used to be.”

The lake thumps
to the bank,
“Spitter spatter.  Rub a dub.
Tittle tattle.  Damn, you’re cold.”

Legend

1 tanka/varnish

Ancestor’s judgements
Some analogue picnic of
Misinformation
Churning the precarious
Starlit varnished winter dream
