Nick Hoffman – Ireland (PJ30)

mom’s weekend away
dad cooks
our eggs “Navy style”

best friend’s girl
I taste the nicotine
on her tongue

black sheep
on the ship’s manifest
grandpa’s name

late night revisions . . .
my haiku drifts
into senryu

New Year’s Eve —
the first firework
wakes the cat

quiet night in
he balances a beer can
on his belly
