Eve of New year's Eve
Make your choices quickly
Less you miss the boat

Ian Row
Zen at Ground Zero
Weather warning is forecast
You are a lighthouse

Ian Row
sooner or later
all your second chances
run out

Ian Row
My open window
Allows the neighbour's air con
To hum me to sleep

It's hard to be still
Birthday anticipation
The child in the man

A Tak Po (Dim Sum Restaurant) Twinset

Dinner for one
I asked for the pork not frog
I'm glad he checked

Sliced pork black pepper
If it works there is no shame
in repeating meals

Summertime Bathing Blues

No words are needed.
A sideways judging glance
at my gut's enough.

Afraid of the sea
but I love the ships with their
masts and ropes and sails

Dying moth
I am afraid to confront
your struggle

Imperfect flowers.
Where do they go to die?
Beauty has a place.

Yelled at by lollipop man
Margin of error

A warm summer night
Silence not even static
Check cat for a pulse

Sorry I'm filthy
I like it under the car
Like the way it smells

And when you get back
Please please change the fucking sheets

You going shopping?
A real present this year please?
Something to cuddle

Calendar haiku: December

Plains and mountains
all enveloped in the snow -
there is nothing else
