a monoku and two monostichs by Alan Summers

how to fit into the world slinking cat



we stake out an ice cream van Fahrenheit 451



birth mother visit a cabbie talks of spring equinoxes



Alan Summers has sparrows follow him all around the world it seems, including hotel reception foyers. He is a Japan Times award-winning writer; President of the United Haiku and Tanka Society, and co-founder of Call of the Page: www.callofthepage.org
