Abrahaam's Haiku

One wakes up, says: should it be the pancakes
or eggs with ham?
The other's choice is:
Isaac or the lamb.

American Haiku

One said to another: I've travelled the world
looking to find a perfect face
with no flaws, no sign of pain.
The other replied: you've travelled in vain.

Pseudo Haiku

one asked: what would you do
if you had to do it again?
the other answered:
i wouldn't.

Ego or Request To a Friend

To Frank O'Reilly

write to me about the leaves
about the sea
about the stones
about the seeds
about the air
about the cross
about what’s there
left to be lost
write to me
about angels
about fire
about joseph and the manger
magdalene’s desire
write about the garbage in dublin
about the dust
about impotence
about lust
about plush whores
about dry saints
about these wars
that make us faint
about the green
the impossible blue
write to me anything
don’t write about you
