traps inside radiant heat
subdues wakefulness

chinese restaurant
rendezvous where teacups clink
where christmas cash flows

water window smears
from faulty windshield wipers
induce drowsiness

12.19.15

a pattern to match
a module to be loaded
lazy functioning

sonorous resonations
of adam driver's sith voice
resound in my ears

12.17.15

finally finished
the unabridged journals of
sylvia plath yay

high school soccer game
fifa disconnect explains
lack of lob passes

yo barnes & nobles
why you ain't got no dang books
gift card coercion

the episode ends
credits roll to exit song
next button beckons

12.13.15

sylvia and chill
innumerable entries
sinusoidal mood

familiar drive home
loud wind buffets blue chassis
cows smell, music plays

finals done squad brunch
christmas shopping paper source
fight club spliced durden

where are all the youths
drive to old pasadena
crowded traffic jam

aardvark bucket hat
forty year old fisherman
fun beams from sun gleam

crock pot the pot's hot
passively cooking meal in
ceramic stoneware

year's end music plays
scroll through interminable
spotify rainbow

free will red pill the
blonde girl lies prone, windowsill,
blame the architect

are you inside out
just ask the superquadric
trace the ray till dawn

12.04.15

early morning buzz
phone call disturbing slumber
groggy roll to floor

my life in haiku
why do i do what i do
why do cows go moo
