Haiku, by Michael Brandt

blinking cell towers
never sleeping always bright
new constellations

disappeared adverbs
misplaced or truly extinct?
the answer comes quick

one through forty-five
honored on Presidents Day
false equivalence

sexy high-heeled shoes
running made impossible
invented by men

material excess
fads and prurient fumblings
ignorance as bliss

never, forever
everyone and nobody
words one should avoid

Michael Brandt, Arena
