blind alley . . .
she takes a turn
for the worse
Modern Haiku, vol. 42.3, Autumn 2011
Confession #1: Not all haiku/senryū are strictly autobiographical. Confession #2: I sometimes live in my head. Confession #3: I like living there. Confession #4: I haven’t yet sent off for a subscription to Modern Haiku. Confession #5: I’m planning to . . . soon. Confession #6: I’m no less thrilled to have my semi-autobiographical, living-in-my-head, confessional senryū featured among the works of other possibly semi-autobiographical living-in-his/her-head haiku poets like my friend, mentor, and ku-buddy Melissa Allen. Confession #7: I’ll be hitting the link button to view my semi-autobiographical confessional senryū on the sample page for the current issue of Modern Haiku many more times today. Confession #8: I’d like to have you join me for a cyberspace sneak peek. Confession #9: I’m salivating in anticipation of reading the entire print issue . . . soon!
