Two Hak-ku (Hakim + Haiku…really Senryu…= Hak-ku) and one Nah-ku (short haiku-like poem that is a few syllables too long) from my drive to the Poet Laureate Panel & Performance at the Southwest Festival of the Written Word in Silver City.
Big thanks to Silver City Poet Laureate Bonnie Buckley Maldonado for inviting me and sharing a brilliant reading!
Look at You
If your conscience is
so clear, then why do you
continue, to drown it
Reminder (for Career Artist Parents everywhere)
I solemnly swear
to not turn my son’s childhood
into a business
Life is Like a Bad Poem
Life is like a bad poem, where the obvious is painfully obvious…and the subtle is too.
