3 haikai by Richard Stevenson

eighties hair bands
play the ball park tonight
eggshell blonde


no more cats
the robin luxuriates
in the bird bath


whale sharks in the gulf
need my signature today
want teeth I expect


Richard Stevenson recently retired from a thirty-year gig teaching English and Creative Writing at Lethbridge College in southern Alberta.  He will be moving to Nanaimo when his wife retires in two years.  His most recent of thirty books are two haikai collections: Fruit Wedge Moon (Hidden Brook Press, 2015), and The Heiligen Effect (Ekstasis Editions, 2015).  Rock, Scissors, Paper: The Clifford Olson Murders, a long poem sequence, should be out in the fall.
