senryu of childhood


American Village - La Mazure 2010

senryu of childhood

dreaming of princes
in a most childish state
unrealistic

crayons stuffed in holes
garden filled with many toys
children live inside

birth of prophecy
childhood Armagedon
rank hysteria

those childhood friends
lost for several decades
link to each other

end of childhood
complicated histories
professional poetics

Potty Chair Limerick


Boy Sitting on a Potty Chair With Toilet Paper

Potty Chair Limerick

As the new year approaches toddlers swear
That they will learn to behave in day-care
They will stop talking back
And get on the right track
As they pee-pee in the kid’s potty chair.

Three Childhood Senryu


Cursing Anime Children

Three Childhood Senryu

crayons stuffed in holes
garden filled with many toys
children live inside

dreaming of princes
childish transpiration
unrealistic

between good and bad
boys were caught chanting curses
scribed in ancient books
