Haikus

1

She walks in the room

perfectly clothed in midnight

the married man stares

2

He vomits, too much

returning to the table,

eyeing the dessert

3

The old man sits alone

surrounded by lifelessness

things he chased instead

4

The writer watches

pen unmoving, tells himself

it’s all writing – yeah?

5

the babies cries start

“Shut him up!” the husband yells

mother’s face is bruised

6

“Working late” again.

He misses his wife’s call; he 

doesn’t know she left.

7

He looks up at me

asks only for spare change, but

I want my coffee.
