Poetry from Bill Wolak

Also in this Issue: Bill Wolak interviews Naoshi Koriyama
Nine Haiku

kissing just
where your eyebrow

inside the snowman
a scarecrow dreaming
of frozen waterfalls

flesh so pale
accumulating snow 
on polished marble

the sharpest knife
slices straight to the bottom
of rinse water

backwoods blizzard
every swirling snowflake 
a wild gawking eye

four men carrying
a corpse to the river
for burning

quivering silver
the mirror’s skirt
lifted by moonlight

body of winks and whispers
twirling and twisting your hair
around a finger

looking down your dress
a jet’s passing
