Florence Haiku Sequence

blood orange
in small plastic cups
green fields blur

.

sidewalk café
crowded with the
swell of English accents

.

miniatures
in the souvenir shop
the fan droops

trimming mat board
with borrowed scissors
Dr Conrad squirms

.

to climb the Duomo
and breathe in the whole city
– graffiti

.

frozen white
David’s too-large-hands
towering over us
