Lazy Haiku

*These haikus do not follow the traditional syllabic 5-7-5 frame (except for #4), so that’s why I called them “lazy haiku.”

A feeling I can’t put my finger on
like a tingling in the marrow
or a bone in the throat.

I think you know what to do with what
you’ve been given.
I think you know what’s in front of you now.

Eyes slide sideways, but the gaze goes beyond.
You always stare right through me without having
to look at me once.

Because you are here
the moon unbuttons her shirt
so you can see her.

All I see are roads in front of me
without signs pointing me in any one direction.
All I have are options without reasons.

My cat’s tail curled into a question mark
this morning. I looked into his green eyes
and found the answer.

You say you’ve cried too many tears, too many times
because of lack of love, when the real lack is that
which lies in your mirror.
