Laundry Day

All of them,
dried & drying
c l o t h e s
strewn about
the small apartment
are apt to smell heavily
of camel
& nag champa –

Haiku After Crestline (2nd time)

“I think that people
have been stealing our glasses,
hope you understand.”

out in San Bernardino –
get the stuffed knockwurst.

Thanks for everything,
never here but if I am
I know where to go.
