Haibun: ‘If My Friend Comes’

My friend might come to eat dinner with me. We could sit by the window and wait and watch for the first star. We could toss down shots of apple juice, and retrace our long, sublime journey of friendship in story and song. If my friend comes to dinner…

In a dusty ditch
a few sunflowers still bloom—
first days of autumn.
