Another Aftermath


Bird songs, as I awake ahead of the alarm
Headache: fruit of the prior day’s tension—
or that extra glass of Burgundy

Or another gift from that beloved team teacher

I work through the form
Now, the taste of pancakes, saturated in log cabin syrup
Echoes of yesterday’s concerns fade

But not entirely

after the rain—
everything under the clouds
“so f-ing green!”

Frank J. Tassone

I fell in love with writing ever since I wrote my first short story at the age of 12 and my first poem in high school. My free-verse has appeared in the literary e-zine Pif. My haibun has been published in Cattails, Haibun Today, Contemporary Haibun Online (CHO) and Contemporary Haibun, CHO's annual print anthology. I am honored to be a part of the Image Curve community as a contributing poet.
