Steak SandwichA taste of red leaps and bounds all over the place, flashes of gold splash around.
The waitress's words feel soft as wool as she asks,
"Does everything taste all right?"
It does, but it's not that simple.
Beef gets torn apart with every bite,
Chewed through, crunched through
The fried onions are spiky, and jab at my tongue while making crackling sounds under the pressure of teeth.
The bread is rough and tough, all of the softness toasted out of it.
There's too much else going on here for one to just taste their food.
Do the waters sleep,
what images might fill their dreams?
Light gilds the surface,
while unimagined life forms
find sanctuary in the depths.
Haiku/SenryuSwimsuit dreams in winter,
sunscreen scented poolside songs,
time on dragonfly wings.

Leaves cover the ground
The sky is full of clouds
It’s cold but my heart is hopeful
Soon it will be the days of Nowruz

and the taste of blood like iron in her mouth
It stains her teeth and leaks from her lips, and as she
rinses her mouth out, she can’t help thinking that
it’s better than dirt and ashes
it feels like she’s wearing a noose
of broken promises and shattered glass
that tightens around her throat with every day that passes
She nails a smile to her face
and doesn't let herself think the word dying
Keep in Touch!
