haiku 20/4/7c
Mark Wanless Apr 8
I was desiring something
what I got was
an empty cigarette
Mark Wanless Apr 8
The dog barks I hear a voice
a mindless call to action.

Heart races, weapons manned, a
murderous transaction.

A thought or ten passes within
will I do or die on this day.

Emotion my enemy, dying a little more with every trigger I trigger.

And I walk one pull
at a time into the darker

The absence of light where my soul once reside, for my sanity I continually barter.

of the butterfly

dog ma
Mark Wanless Dec 2019
the pup was mid size
lazy but quick when wanted
played rough but never drew blood
ate her fair share

stayed warm on the rim
protecting her siblings
just the way it was
no problem

grew to love the hunt
the view of the pray
calm powerful quiet
a good meat provider

years of travail thinned
the pack at times
the long summer and
everyone grew fat

fight for food
battles won and lost
rising in order
season is ready

only the strongest allowed
a dame of menace
courage to touch her
her will prevailed

Mark Wanless Nov 2019
i saw a man waiting for a rat
     to come out it's hole
     so he could eat it

     no avalanche ever came

standing naked on a small ledge
     anxious waiting to drop hard
     i masturbated and left
