Five Haiku

The wind
Undecided
Rolls a cigarette of air

The mute girl talks:
It is art’s imperfection.
This impenetrable speech.

The motor car is truly launched:
Four martyrs’ heads
Roll under the wheels.

Ah! a thousand flames, a fire,
The light, a shadow!
The sun is following me.

A feather gives to a hat
A touch of lightness:
The chimney smokes.
