  101.     

Frankenstein's Little Heads

there were thousands of tiny heads
locked inside a corporate logo

but with one collective breath
they gave life to the monster

a will of its own, independent of its
makers, willing to do

anything and everything, for
good or for evil, to insure

its survival, and thereby increase
the profits of its stockholders—

thousands of other tiny heads
in fancy little gilt-edged boxes of their own.

Funicular (Haiku)

Mountain's misted peak
up and down railway dreamers
passing through the clouds

  103.     

Ghostly (Haiku)

Lightning break the window
cat arched back in fear
apparition comes

  104.     

Glass Houses

Poetry has been
delicate crystal
preciously placed
quaint curio, glass and brass
the far right corner
pedestal and candle
high above the mantle
fine for show and
after dinner chit-chat
champagne and caviar but
so awkwardly
out of reach
impossibly difficult to
take down
grit and fingernail
where
a tattered page
corners cut
to mark
great passages.
