Atlanta Haikus

DRUNK

Walk out of dive bar
see an old water tower
think about climbing

SWELTER

Hot night June wedding
bartender is drunk pouring
have place three more hours

ENTREPRENEUR

Said he didn’t sleep
enough to just nap here, there
price paid to make it

AMBLE

Midnight rendezvous
long walk down empty hallway
watched in dark mirror

STIR

Seen before first light
an outline of the expanse
extracts a deep breath

SCENE

Captured the image
got it developed, framed it
then tucked it away

LINGER

Evocative chasm
engineered in late night dream
deepens in daylight

EXHAUST

Wake up to air breathed
the room a thousand exhales
still the night is long
