The most beautiful things

Ain’t pretty to behold

Beauty’s within and sings

Vanity license plates imbue
Belongings with dreams we want true

Winter’s Filthy Finish

March 13, 2015

Sometime in April under some black crust

This winter’s last filthy snow’ll liquidate 

Spring’s flowers will obscure a world at rust

At snow’s death & decay we’ll celebrate

Avonte Oquendo

25a. Missing teenager/
#Avonte #Oquendo found/
Mere earthly remains/
#haiku

25. One boy’s tragedy/
Implicates our city’s scale/
Mysterious death/
#haiku

26. A little boy walked/
Away from his school unwatched/
& ended up dead/
#haiku

27. Autistic skill sets/
Hide full human emotions/
#Avonte, I weep!/
#haiku #avonteoquendo

28. Though he wouldn’t speak/
#Avonte was still a child/
With all life’s promise/
#haiku

29. #Schools do a great job/
Though they can’t do ev’rything/
Give them all a #raise!/
#haiku

30. Better paid workers/
Ensure our children’s safety/
Cheapest isn’t best/
