Poetry Month #22: Phil Whalen

While we’re on the topic of haiku–some from Beat poet Phil Whalen–the only venerable American poet I ever considered to be in my family. He was alternately my charge, my mentor, and…well, just himself.

Awake a moment
Mind dreams again
Red roses black-edged petals


Bouquet of HUGE
nasturtium leaves
“HOW can I support myself?”
