Ten Haikus About Something Painful

1.

In the empty time

from which come no songs, no gods

not even stories

2.

The spider-ghosts move

not-dead and not-living things

hanging from the stars

3.

Pools of ink and light

Frozen yellow boxed-in flames

Eye-squares square the sky

4.

Spider-ghost returns

taking on the forms of gods

threads through spinning eyes

5.

The edges devour

the center of the painting

leaving a finger.

6.

Bone-cloud-covered skies

dogs run, eyes open, teeth bared

voices bleeding rage.

7.

Pools of ink and light

cloud-colored cloth wrapping up

that best left unseen.

8.

Dry leaf skeletons

Skitter circles over stones

then return to sleep.

9.

Orange cylinders

ovals, circles in pastel

seven years gone by.

10.

A voice’s echo

flying through the tunnel, fades

into the shadows.
