A String of Night Haikus

A gust of wind
travels across the downtown—
a lamppost shuts off.

***

Along the cables
perch a flock of little birds
chirping in tunes.

***

Traffic lights,
headlights, eyes—
all blinking.

***

The sirens blare
incessantly—a girl sobs
among the crowd.

***

Two flashlights hover
over the curled body—
a pair of eyes

***

From behind the bars,
a wisp of smoke
drifts up to the moon.

***

The sheets of rooftops
look soft and white
under the moonlight.

***

Candies burst
from the cotton cloud
where the child sleeps.

***

Half-awake,
in the dark—
pouring rain.

***

See how smooth
the soap slides down
the girl’s wet breasts.

***

The hanged man

sways around the room—
a pendulum.

***

The night’s our mirror:
we are the movement
of the stars.
