Haibun pamphlet


The snarling kite
flirting with sadness,
in distress for the hum
of trees.

Between haibun and pamphlet, between trendsetting treatise and gullible play, most grant the uneventful with the benefit of the doubtful. Yet this is the absurd, fleeting tanka prose portion of the mixed miracle, what Ionesco is to – say - politic[sic], what the illegible poem is to the twenty-buck queen, what the mise en abyme of the prose-poem inside this haibun is to the bug inside the rat inside the cat inside the anaconda inside the 747 inside the restricted airspace, and also what Uruguay is to the Himalayan beaches:

a three-sentenced,
multilayered beauty
transferring raw energy.
