Haiku: Longing

July 19, 2010

Taking the dog out
again: vain hope of catching
a glimpse of her.
_______________

Midsummer morning,
early – still cool in shade of
trees below her flat.
_______________

Traipsing up and down
supermarket aisles, furtive
glance in checkout queue.
________________

Tossing and turning
can’t sleep it’s too hot. In fact
thinking of her. Fuck it.
_______________

She comes into view
heart lurches misses a beat
adrenaline rush.
_______________

Split second glimpse of
her across the street lingers
on my retina.
