hialeah haikus

For a while now I've been wrestling with the idea of writing poems about Miami and by a happy coincidence I found out that a local bookstore was having an event tonight to promote a short volume of poetry called Hialeah Haikus. For the moment, these are a few of my favorite.

big mistake at Mami's house
Che Guevara shirt

we buried pancho
now, like Cuban Highlander
gramps is the last one

"el de la barba
quien carajo es, primo?"
Citizenship Test.
