Favorite haibun of the summer issue:

Colophon

                           This slim volume
                             of lyrical verse
                         my neighbour’s wife

There she lies, on my desk, appropriated and reified in Perfect Binding, the kind that comes apart all too easily—but coveted nonetheless. With infinite grace in brittle sunshine she hangs out the family washing. Up there with Donne she’d never guess herself possessed by a marbled and slightly foxed old neighbour, lusty once, now bound in buckram and reading out his final years.

                             the warm sun
                        brightens an old carpet
                             as it passes
