2022 07 Haiku

the arbitrary
rules of childhood are
arbitrary still

your face shines
like sunshine just for me
soothes troubled water

it is a burden
to have consciousness
I will not make more

you can’t hide from me
I know every lie you told
Even to yourself

Stay in the far lane
Of the turnaround to turn
Into the far lane

Floats into the air
Like ash escaping a flame
Lost ephemera
