My friend, esteemed poet Van K. Brock, sent me a string of powerful haiku (see Comments), starting with this apology:
all else should be more lovely,
with stars, planets, moons.
And so I feel compelled, in exquisite corpse fashion, to reply:
stars, planets, moons–
so many old friends I see
circling my night sky
Care to keep the exquisite corpse circling? I’ll post responses (as well as including them in the comment section) soon . . .
