Crisp Blue

crisp blue Winter

forgeting those hazy Summer reds

with oozing roads holding

sluggish tyres

and air conditioned people

stuck

all needing to be

the car in front

needing their

air conditioned TV screen

to tell them today’s temperature

and tomorrow’s

never ending Summer reds

forgetting these few moments of

crisp blue Winter

Senryu – city street crossing

city street crossing

styles blown frizzy – smells of soup

people hug themselves
