Spring rain—
the unconsumed ducks
are quacking.

Lame duck, tame duck, aint that a shame duck.
Tiny bit of fame duck, framed up with no luck.
Snuck up into a red truck,
killed, plucked, cooked up into a tasty sup.

Unless the lucky duck snuck clean up out
of the mean cook's look.
That's all it took to book this lucky duck
on a flight right the fffk out of this same lame fate.


from What Words May Come, released May 31, 2016
on a haiku by Kobayashi Issa (1763 – 1827) and a stream-of-consciousness text message I sent my wife on 02 May 2016.
