Short poems

A few short ones:

HAIKU
My room is silent
Knocking round the house downstairs
Your October cough

(by me!)

THINK THAT YOU’RE GLIDING

Think that you’re gliding out from the face of a cliff
like an eagle.  Think you’re walking
like a tiger walks by himself in the forest.

You’re most handsome when you’re after food.

— Rumi

THE OLD AUTOMAT ON 23RD STREET

I wandered into the automat
Wearing a kind of religious hat
The meatballs were round
And the pancakes were flat
I asked G_d in heaven
To keep it like that

– Leonard Cohen

THE SWEETEST LITTLE SONG
You go your way
I’ll go your way too

– Leonard Cohen
