[The following three poems are in the Haiku style of poetry which is a Japanese form of micro-poetry.]
1. Wit’s chemistry
When wit deceives my ego’s eyes, reality and dream converge into surreal moments of fluid truth.
2. Random Funk
Moody feet land on melancholy quicksand sink.
The mind deeper into the blackest of black, the septic gut of depression.
3. Monologue Failure
My mind, poached its yolk spilling out into a void;
past mirrored hallways, grey reflections of words are chained to my tongue.
