Five Haicuckoo

1

      doesn't tell them of

wound, only realize as he

      expires contritely

 

2

 

word association a breeze rorschach and awe

 

3

      when you perceive all the demons

invisible to others

      snowed under

 

4

      to sell oneself

niche market –

      chasing rainbows 

 

5

      vicious cycle:

crank music to discern the

      garbled words spoken
