HAIKOANS: Poems by Felix Fojas

1. angelus church bell tolls woman making a sign of the cross

2. clock rings man smothers it with a pillow & sleeps again

3. speeding ambulance screaming siren little boy covers his ears

4. rope breaks anchor drops into the sea plop!

5. sweat trickles down the man’s brow tear-shaped tiny sun

6. late night empty courtyard silence playing a game of solitaire

7. calm waves overturned boat floating bloated bodies

8. sun setting in the sea: O half fire, half water!

9. badge glittering in the sun heart of gold?

10. ball rolls child follows ball screeching tires
