Outback’s End

fall haibun



A plastic box filled with a white-russian colored film. Corrosion in the slots where cylinders fit. A technician’s solemn expression:

“In twenty years, it’s always a cracked engine block.”

After 9 years and 155,514 miles, my first new car dies.

Autumn wind
hanging on a lift over
its grease-stained parts

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.
