Richard Thomas


Five Haiku


summer air thickens

two fruit bats make love

under the streetlight



numb about love

the honeybee

rejects its first flower



first spider on the moon –

he on my yellow

bathroom wall



Roman arch –

an old beggar sits

frowning at girls




all the snails of the universe

on their way out
