New 5 Line Poems (Gogyohka)

the sky wants to toss
the lonely half moon
like a boomerang
so I can catch it
and drop it into my tea

Is it my eyes
or did the moon
release its glaring halo--
push two stars
above its head?

lonely half moon
dabbed on navy blue
sleeps in the midst
of silence
and a tooty train
