Grand Central Station.
Afternoon echoes chaos
of workers released.


Seeing Exhaust

rise from tired tailpipes, as if the metal
monsters themselves were sighing, attempting
to release the stress from shoulders of weary drivers.
Gray smoke tendrils signal potential escape
paths.  I watch them dissipate, dissolve
into the blue sky of another
Friday afternoon.


Subway Musings (A Haiku String)

Millions of touchings—
hands, feet, asses of anonymous
origin—plague potential.

Sycophantic lawyer stalks.
Waitress wraps her raincoat tighter.
Doors open—smell the escape.

Bodies collide. Entering
and exiting figures fade, become
interchangeable ghosts.


Search and Rescue

Yard sale.
Morning junk hunt.
Car barely crawls down streets.
Spotted: glitter amongst the dust.
