haiku

water dripping down
from rusting pipes counting time –
the sun’s morning crown

in a feijoa
orchard, birds are singing – ripe
fruit lies on the grass

the night’s starry robe
dresses the hills – an old man

Sign Your Name

Today, my name
Was etched into steel
But you tell me
This is not how it feels.

No “U” in unaware.
Only some random drugs that say
Goodbye, world.
If only.

Haiku

Cha cha’ed beneath our feet.

Has torn through my heart and soul
Like a butcher’s hacking blade.
And I can never taste love again.

Where is this love
That will set me free?

The interviewer started to put Tom's papers back into the brown manila folder. “And I’m gonna report you for discrimination,” Tom said. The interviewer laughed as he closed the folder. “You hate faggots,” Tom continued trying to force the point home.
