an American fish in & out of Estonian waters

Three Buskers


Playing his heart out

as people hurry on past,

he sings for himself.


* * *


Strumming her guitar,

she hopes you will spare your time

rather than your change.


* * *


Breathing in – he thinks,

“if only someone listened,”

and blows his trumpet.


… from the Kalamaja Yang haiku cycle …
