Final Friday of 2011 Doodle

We're running into 2012 as fast as we can (the mad dash at one second per second). This little doodle is my tip of the hat and farewell to 2011.

Happy New Year's Weekend, everyone!

Criminous Haiku on The 5-2

The week of December 26, the crime poetry site The 5-2 is featuring a haiku I wrote. Besides being a haiku about crime, it has a seasonal/holiday slant.

Gerald So, who edits The 5-2 site, posts a new crime-associated poem each week. Gerald is a member of the Academy of American Poets, his poems have appeared in Nerve CowboyBarbaric YawpDefenestrationCherry BleedsYellow MamaGutter Eloquence Magazine and other provocatively-named venues. He broadcast an invitation for holiday-themed submissions, and I responded. I'm not sure how many weeks he has set aside for the holiday poetry, but I was pleased to receive his acceptance. Gerald also posted his reading of the poem. It's haiku, so don't worry -- it's short.
