Today Sept 14th Post: note

I will be waking up very early in order to give a talk at Lyndon State College in Vermont with Joe Gittleman, for his school’s Music Business seminar. Pages 30-40 of ‘The Modern American Gypsy’ will be posted in the evening once I get back and stretch.

Below are some ‘American Love Haikus’ for you until I get back (yes, not the standard beat scheme, but more Kerouack style).

Thanks for reading :)

american love haikus

 coffee employees laugh

and drop things

she likes him and him her

*

warm hands

cold noses

skating at night

*

student sees him approach

outside the coffee shop window

love

*

she cries to the moon

red phone rings

she is loved

*

fall ends the love affair

walking home

there are no tears

*

long shiny hair

covering my naked chest

let’s fall asleep

*

the boat coasts

a silent lake

her first romantic boy

*

mum’s lips on dad’s cheek

“mm” he says

after forty years

*

lips are softer

than I imagined

kiss me again

*

a fall date

she knows how to dance

uh oh

*

warm summer rain

naked in a field

what a joy she is

*

she sat on my lap

what do I do?

what do I do?

*
