various haiku I just found on the machine…

July sun on my neck —
grinding of the coffee roaster
______
fourth of July —
wasp explores the flag
______
July rain
drying my hair in it
______
again
the summer rain
again
______
pulling back the left sleeve of my shirt —
five minutes since last time

    Patti, I LOVE the effect of the mutated repetitions here, the sense of time passing and the same things happening over and over but in a slightly different way each time — this captures a certain mood perfectly.
