    For a midnight snack
    She ate through philosophy.
    Still dreams in the sand.

    Still dreams in the sand
    endure the heat, expecting
    oases to come.

    Oases to come
    But first the cooling twilight
    The frigid black night

    The frigid black night
    whispers at my window pane:
    Spring? Are you in there?

    The box is mute and lifeless -
    Jack has lost his leap.

    Jack has lost his leap
    But the March hares still run wild
    Through rain to April

    A grand performance
    from the man in bulbous times
    Who is he? He is.

    Who is he? He is
    that which he is. Which makes him
    fully circular.

    is nice design, but not for
    your family tree.

    Your family tree
    has forgotten its old roots.
    Humans are one race.

    Humans are one race,
    starting at protozoa,
    ending among stars.

    Ending among stars
    is merely leading us back
    to where we started.

    To where we started,
    Excuses, nurses, hearses
    We were outsmarted.

    "Aren't you tired yet?"
    I am never tired of
    making haiku chains.

    Please ignore the clearly insane electrical engineer behind the instrument panel. His meds won't wear off until Thur - it's Friday? Already?? Oh dear.

    Making haiku chains
    Within a field of daisies
    Each faces the sun

    Each faces the sun
    hoping the brightness will burn
    off the dark within.

    Off the dark, within
    the space between the walls: her
    presence lingers there.
    From EFFIN' ALBERT:
    “You don’t like Bad Billy,” Albert says.
    I think, Who’s Bad Billy? but that cop must know ´cause right away his smile disappears and his eyes go unfriendly real fast.
    “Why do you say that, son?” he says. Talking nice but I don’t believe it.
    “She calls you that,” Albert says.
    “How do you—” The cop stops talking. He’s staring at Albert then he drags himself away and looks at me.
    “Go get your mother,” he says.
    He ain’t asking.

    Presence lingers
    there in the forest, here in
    your cold, shallow grave.

    Your cold, shallow grave -
    An unfulfilled reflection,
    The worms kept you warm.

    Their nurturing, earthen cloak
    bearing Spring's spare sprout.

    Bearings, springs! Spares sprout
    from my steampunk chair, poking
    my tender assets.
