Sun showers!
out of nowhere blindsides
crafty brigands

elevator down
ovens smoke
choking smell of sulfur

ice melt takes finesse –
half-measures, refreeze
in worse configurations

dust bunny
caught under chair leg
hunter’s snare

think done for season,
false sense security lulls…
out window, snow comes

2 Haiku: smoke rings & saline

only hurting myself
secondhand smoke rings

the saline droops out
of her eyes in two
straight lines like paint drips

More so, when one causes the other. – mh clay

When snorkeling with
threshers the cage is purely
a formality
