Yankee Smoke Haikus

Yankee Doodle Doo

A pennant in every pot

Happy fat chickens. 

Four score and seven

Parchment burning with the chaff

Newborns chewing hay. 

She pulls up her net

Red white and blue underwear

Patriotic fish.

Flags whispering eyes

Prying fingers on tombstones

Cool tea and crumpets. 

Hoist the burning star

Spangled hornets swarm the pole

Swaddled in banners.

I write, act, and produce films in Los Angeles. Everything else is conjecture.
