Jaiku (jail haiku) Haiku 2014

Sun warms the wings

after flying near the jail

crimson razor wire.

----

Sparrow sits and stares

atop the stainless steel fence

galvanized blood.

----

Migration shadows

as I stand staring

from jail.

----

Along the jail fence

starlings hang on razor wire

stare at us.

----

Just before dawn

past the old jail fence

starling migration.

----

Pulling the last shade

of night heading south

a million starlings.

----

Along the fence

the gravity of snow

reveals barbed wire.

----

Sleeping on the floor

three to a cell at Maplehurst

sounds the guards make.

----

I hope I never

have to hear these sounds

keys  lock  hopelessness.
