High Security Building

STOP. Show ID. Smile.
Now you are on record here;
you may go upstairs

lunch presentation
stranger walks in; does not eat
a stranger walks in?

how did she get here?
nobody knows who she is
sits biting her nails

shy to confront her
she might be from M-E-P
hoping for free lunch

leg still unsteady
physical therapy helps
drove my car today!

Blasting Walnuts

black walnuts falling
squirrels take aim at car windshield
direct hit cracks glass

falling black walnuts
scare buyers off; garage sale
makes only six bucks

good friends come over
commiserate with our plight
help eat the walnuts

right now

iphone in my hand

Glorious Silence

I slid out of bed
ages ago, drove through the
dark muck to my work

Dark offices greet
I sit at my quiet desk
No boss yet, haiku!

Soon the drones file
in like disgruntled ants at
some crappy picnic

Ack! I'm so sorry.
Work, toddler, baby on way
silenced my haiku

None a good excuse
though true I must do better
my promise to you
