HAIKU FOR MARTIN LUCAS

May 7, 2014 § Leave a comment

 

a new

anthology I learn

of his passing

 

 

his brother

concerned

for days

 

 

on the page

before me in

the old anthology

 

 

went for a walk

left his keys his phone

his pills

 

 

said yes

once to one of

my poems

 

 

“Is that from your

technique or the toughness

of your mouth?”

 

 

your death

attributed to

bird-watching

 

 

a collection

of flowers that’s

all it means

 

 

his last photo

he looks younger

than me

 

 

1962-2014
