O, Humidity

O, humidity
heavy air dripping with sweat
boys cannonball off docks.

How can you not like a guy who's written a book called Canoe Haiku? Good poem.

Dangerous habit getting deep in the moment: haiku addiction! [Sorry, Gary, but the craving just kicks in sometimes... nice one this, with those cannonball boys - just what they do!]

How few words (and how much living) it takes to make a great poem.
