Haiku by Mark Blaeuer

A Course in Epistemology at Cambridge

Let us now discuss
how an ant should go about
pinching Wittgenstein.

Ludwig is buried,
rendering the ant's approach
uber difficult.

Does said ant believe
it has a chance to finish
the job?  Not really.

Mark Blaeuer's poems and translations have appeared in nigh onto seventy journals.  His first collection, Fragment of a Nocturne (White Violet Press) was published in 2014.

and I begin?

i chase a dream
