four haiku with a tanka couplet

her nightgown slips

past her hips

as she steps toward him


her skin cool

beneath the sheets

simmers at his touch


a fan rattles

over tangled sheets;

cicada pulse the heat outside.


she wakes before dawn,

and slips from bed,

leaving him alone


like rain in drought, we

desire what remains
