your long limbs …

your long limbs
naked in the doorway
of my memory

(haiku)

*****************************

astride my lap
your legs hanging down …
I propose marriage

(haiku)

*****************************

… Sudanese women
gathering groceries,
their faces scarified
like ancient bones
become cracked
charcoal; or as
if they had lain
with lions …

*****************************
