Four “Bus Poems” published by 5-7-5 Haiku Journal.

Thank you very much to Atlantean Publishing for reprinting/publishing several of my “Bus Poems,” in their 5-7-5 Haiku Journal.

I wrote a bunch of these short pieces back when I worked as a paratransit driver. I would see something that I thought was notable or I’d have a thought or someone would say something about how they “didn’t like dead people much” or … well, you get the idea.

During the next stop, when it was safe and convenient, I’d scribble my idea in a little notebook I kept inside the bus.

This is the first time any of these Bus Poems (and I’ve written a lot of them) have appeared online. Some of them were published in print back in 2019 in Organic Ink Volume 2 by Dragonsoul Press, though that paperback is currently out of print.

For those of you who have been waiting for the paperback version of The Lost Librarian’s Grave anthology, it became available on Amazon as of November 29th.

My mighty tome of “depravity, misjudgment, and misadventure” is also available as an e-book and can be read for free with Kindle Unlimited.*


* “Mighty” in the sense that the paperback is 437 pages, and “my” in the sense that I edited the thing and didn’t succumb to the bewitching, siren’s call to include some of my own fiction, though I almost did!
