Haiku XI

I make myself laugh

By writing silly poems

No awards are won

Haiku X

Bourbon shines amber

And burns like a forest fire

Alcohol is good

Hollywoodland

1932

young actress

Peg Entwhistle

performed

in her only claim to fame

a swan song swan dive

from atop the letter H

45 foot descent to demise 

 

now a fence surrounds

the LA landmark 

 

Hollywood

the city where dreams are born

 

- C.R. Cohen

Seductive

Your smooth, silky, sensuous curves

Snake across my satin sheets

Smoldering sins in smoky spaces

Sultry, sizzling, sweaty sounds

 

The sexiest letter in the alphabet

 

- C.R. Cohen

True Story

You were my fairy tale

 

saving me from fiery dragon

teeth gnashing

tail flitting

stalking mouth of cave

 

as mother fucking cheesy as it is to say

    you

            were my knight in armor

 

I told you in the moonlight

                                    on a rainy night

      “I’m free” in not so many words

I said “I want you”

            in not so many words

I said

            “I   choose   you”

 

and though you didn’t kiss me that night

            or the next

when you did –

      when you did the stars came out

            and the moons aligned

                        and the sparrows sang

and my stomach

            felt all…   funny      inside    

 

I was never a girl to dream of a wedding

            I          

                    never planned color schemes

                        clipped wedding mags

                or dreamed of a little family

 

You     made me realize the best thing

       I never knew I wanted

 

and fairy tales

            do        come true

 

- C.R. Cohen
