Yankee City Haiku

byseannelson©

this obscure corner
of the vast silicon world-
the size of old Rome

in the taco house
artists and lawyers gather:
carne building blocks

marijuana smoke
fills the concert hall drifting
with the music wind

at the hospital
the human spirit moans and
exults in struggle

by the gas station
great swaths of glowing flowers:
a floral message

"apes" everywhere
thrusting their chests, foreign to
human courtesy

outside the college
informed students smoke Camels
with still strong young lungs

the money clouds rain
on vagrants and posh Mercedes
washing off stone hearts

cave scrawls on canvas
at the art museum where
I gaze abstracted
