HAIKOANS: Poems by Felix Fojas

1. angelus
    church bell tolls
    woman making a sign of the cross

2. clock rings
    man smothers it with a pillow
    & sleeps again

3. speeding ambulance
    screaming siren
    little boy covers his ears

4. rope breaks
    anchor drops into the sea

5. sweat trickles
    down the man's brow
    tear-shaped tiny sun

6. late night
    empty courtyard
    silence playing a game of solitaire

7. calm waves
    overturned boat
    floating bloated bodies

8. sun setting
    in the sea:
   O half fire, half water!

9. badge glittering
    in the sun
    heart of gold?

10. ball rolls
      child follows ball
      screeching tires
