an owl…

 

an owl
only my children can hear
morning rush

 

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

godless…

godless…
enough just to see
the sunrise

 

parting word…
sunset unfurls
over an empty yard

 

folding
into myself
ocean wave

 

Akitsu Quarterly – Fall 2019

Under the Covers

 

Under the Covers

 

Pentecost
you say we aren’t like
those other christians

 

just
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
