short story slam week 34, and sunday whirligig


Short Story Slam Week 34 on Holiday Sentiments

Carpe Diem #873 Deeper into the North: men of this world; picking up rice seedlings; backpack and sword

pulling the teeth
from one's spider net mouth
to avoid cheek infection

a crowing cock
chicks yell to wake up their masters
light by dawn

shouts popping out 
alarms scream with begrudge molecules whirling
to drag out wasps

uncle sammi
pointing his figures at lawn trans-passing dogs
a zigzag walk along torrey pines 
burke residents
drawing cards to seek unexpected luck
finding out a gold mine in annapolis

Whirligig 36

Each of these is so intriguing it seems as though that I have walked in the middle of second act and will never be able to work out the plot!

Carol Campbell said...

This feels to me like a day in American life. The holiness of haiku is very hard to capture from the scenarios here but you have taken it and made it very haiku like!

Jim said...

Yikes! I hate pulling teeth, either mine or somebody else's. But I have just the tool for it, a bent pair or needle noosed pliers.
Thank you for visiting, I did #36 just now.
