Haiku--By Robert Epstein--United States

empty sky
she packs the muse
moving day
_______________

August night
I worm my way
into a poem
_______________

Labor Day
her dad’s goes to wonderland
not heaven
_______________

Labor Day
I feel like Exhibit A
at the zombie zoo
_______________

yowls I wake up a cat in my dreams
_______________
