leans his head on his neighbor
tossed by bus driver

runnin' low on power
no outlet plugs free

looking for inspiration

glancing superficially
drinking artists' wine

wrinkled black faces
curly tails bobbing behind
smiling as they stroll

relaunching the blog
committing to a whole year
haiku every day
