Haiku About Japan

Japan

1
Plastic kitty,
Birthed of Sanrio, hello.
You are not Japan.

2
Label: MADE IN CHINA
In Tokyo’s largest toy store
Must stop chuckling

3
Consumers grab at
Cannon and Toyota gods
How ironic are we

Forever

1
On Tokyo streets,
Bright purple dreams, old and new.
Forever electric.

2
On a gnarled bench,
Old man sits forever.
Konnichiwa, he whispers.

3
Your words are tea bags,
Steeped in hot tears forever,
Forced down my throat.

Green

1
Ethereal green hill,
Are you real or dream?
Grass gilded in peace.

2
Smooth green tea ice cream,
Shrink me, I’ll dive through your
Glassy frozen skin.
