Haiku 9

Marathon strategy

Just like a 50:
start fast, finish strong, don’t fall
apart in between.

Drifting

I am not just a
paper cup. To reach the bridge
requires much effort.

Jet set

Final boarding call
Suits drip from my carry-on
Next workout, next town

Haiku 6

Blossom

Sun makes algae bloom.
Algae makes me smell like a
California roll.

Haiku 5

Friday Night

Get home from work. Then,
eat all the cookies. Then, run.
Then, buy more cookies.

Haiku 4

Missed connections

Fast girl in lane four,
I’d have said ‘hi’ if ever
our repeats lined up.

“Fame, money, and girls
are what it’s all about,” said
no swimmer ever.

Closed water

Flip. Flip. Flip. Flip. Flip.
Flip. Flip. Flip. Flip. Flip. Flip. Flip.
Flip. Flip. Flip. Ugh, pools.
