Haibun: The Medic’s Tale


I had to work without a day off for weeks, up to and including Thanksgiving Day, so the feast is late this year. Plates, potatoes, rolls, wine—everything’s in short supply, and hard to find. Now I have to fight my way through Black Friday crowds. I’ll be lucky to find even a wrinkled tablecloth, bundled in a broken plastic wrapper. With any luck, this shopping expedition will take only hours, not decades. But what do I know? I don’t live in some storybook tale, where bluff and bluster somehow magically compensate for wit and wisdom. This is as real as it gets. And the feast—whatever ends up on our table—is late this year.
 

November morning—
a cup of instant coffee
doesn’t hit the spot.

Haibun: The Bullet


I found a bullet beneath a maple tree whose blood-red leaves seemed to be burning. I took the bullet home and sat in the doorway. Filaments of a broken spiderweb dangled overhead. There was within me a ferocious longing to know what creature had escaped death on that bright autumn day. Something that could crawl or creep? Something that shone or shimmered? I would never know. But in my hands I held, like a communion wafer, the token of its escape. Holy, holy, holy.
 
My rudderless boat—
the frigid current takes me
wherever it wills.
