Raindrops descend upon
cobblestone streets.
Christmas wishes.

Crows scatter from
telephone wires-
my cheek feels sore

"Draw me like
one of your French girls."
Bottles of merlot.


Poet's Note

This poem has a tongue in cheek reference to one of the famous scenes in the movie "Titanic"

Plain white office walls

leave much to be desired.
My eyes paint pictures.

Poet's Note

This poem was published in Vol.17 of 
Haiku Journal 

It's 3am,
he is sitting there alone
with an empty coffee cup.

(The song "In McDonalds" by Burial served to be the inspiration for the poem.)

Yellow journalism received a fresh coat of paint

Poet's Note
My fascination about the media's impact on society took root during my AP History class in high school when we learned about yellow journalism, which was rampant in the late 1800s to early 1900s. Upon receiving my political science degree at the University of Dayton, this fascination with media studies turned into an academic pursuit, particularly the societal impact of media effects.

This was my first attempt at a one line haiku!

Crumbled newspapers
roll down Main Street-

(This poem was inspired by the prompt 'News' over at Haiku Nook on Google+)

I can't write novels or stories at all; however, in conjunction with National Novel Writing Month, I'll be posting (or at least try to) post at least one poem a day.

Hope all goes well!
