HAIBUN

class reunion
ed markowski

 

what about denise, the girl who wore patchouli,
and revealed to me the mysteries of inner space
that night on the roof of her father's liquor store,
with glitter on her cheeks, and the stars in her hair?

everyone i ask shakes their head and says,
"i thought you knew."

 

vivid memories
along with the moon
a cloud takes my shadow
