Haikus by Willie Perdomo

33. 
This evening’s Black sound 
Walks like a cat on grass blades 
Your nickname two-steps 

22. 
Get back to your poems 
Don’t forget to wear your mask 
Main Street is empty 

58. 
Can’t rock your hoodie 
Your cliques of affinity 
Might lead to arrest 

24. 
A virus walk break 
Twilight stroll to compost bin 
Two rusty leaves rap 

77. 
Go ‘head, bro, dance 
There are no mirrors in this joint 
You used to love her 

29. 
Draw her some roses 
The before times are ending 
Lost my love letters 

40. 
Pandemic fashion 
The maples need to speak up 
Detroit Reds all day 

34. 
To live in this hour 
Recall a jukebox love song— 
Punk-ass church bells 

13. 
Perfect ending 
A red-tail rolls over the steeple 
Dandelion gigs 

4. 
Pull the dream catcher 
A death count on the broadcast 
April is chillin’ 

49. 
A bebop wake up 
Getting my shit together 
Brew some Bustelo

Happy Sunday.

Harold Budd – La Bella Vista (2005)
