Haiku by Chuck Von Nordhein

you forget lungs go
in and out and in and out—
until cold mists breath

he says chill stills lust
but she knows he’ll go again—
more cold, more snuggles

outside ice glazed trees—
hungry girl eats donuts
fat hidden till spring

blizzard howls outside
frat boy orders another—
puts on beer jacket

Chuck Von Nordhein lives in Ohio, but considers the California high desert home. He desires to feel sand shift under his feet instead of slick snow. His work has also appeared in Mock Turtle and Every Day Poets, among other places.
