House of Seven Veils

A so-so haiku
is a sad thin frail thing
lies there lumpy, lame

It’s not just gumballs
and fruit juice, not all Pepsi
and popcorn but pain

It’s seep and creep weep
down to one cup of coffee
and no tokes of grass

Ghosts in the drop cloth
with holes hanging out of place
life unrolled, unplayed

Life, leaf, sun, season
these four of seven veils
link all lives to one

They say not doing
is doing in distant done
singing song unsung

Done’s but distant dream
it’s doing that’s the essence
trying is my scheme
