an owl…


an owl
only my children can hear
morning rush


Haiku Society of America’s Members’ Anthology 2019: A Moment’s Longing


enough just to see
the sunrise


parting word…
sunset unfurls
over an empty yard


into myself
ocean wave


Akitsu Quarterly – Fall 2019

Under the Covers


Under the Covers


you say we aren’t like
those other christians


one of the girls
purity ring


if not me
then someone else
pastor’s erection


the weight of his hand
as he pushes me down
Alpha and Omega


end times
all I need
to say yes



a stumbling block
for the pastor’s wife
my strapless dress


women’s retreat
not looking away
as we undress


hidden bruises
only my mouth needed
for the Eucharist


getting what
I deserve
cervical cancer


call for salvation
I raise my hand again
and again


Bleached Butterfly – Issue One
