HAIBUN
 

E-Mail
Mike Montreuil

 

For some reason, I always want to check the status of all my e-mail inboxes. Perhaps, it's a disease like playing on-line video games with people from around the world. And I love the occasional spam e-mail that says I won a million pounds in a British lottery or better yet, Miss Janitha from the Ivory Coast is looking for help in depositing the 8.5 million her dear old father left her. It's a shame she doesn't know what to do. I know it's a scam, but I would like to see her picture, just in case.


Monday morning –
still cynical
about our fellow man

 


Mike Montreuil Recently retired from managing his son's minor hockey teams, Mike Montreuil is now looking forward to the Montreal Canadiens winning the Stanley Cup again. A chapbook of his haibun, Last Away Tournament, was published last May by Bondi Studios. A book of French Tan Renga written with Luce Pelletier is forthcoming from les Éditions de Tanka Francophone.
