Street 'kus

The street theme continues. Over the past year I have written a collection of haikus about street names, all except one about streets and intersections in towns I’ve lived in, visited, or read on Interstate Highway exit signs. Here are several, along with the cities in which you can find the mentioned streets.

Morgantown, West Virgina

Cheat Lake is one choice
at the Morgantown exit.
I choose Fairchance Road.

Anytown, U.S.A.

Forest, meadow, pond.
Found in ev’ry housing tract,
in street names, at least.

Fayetteville, North Carolina

After Qaeda’s bombs
they renamed old Anthrax Street.
Wha’d they think before?

Lake Buena Vista, Florida

For seventy bucks
walk Main Street at Disney World,
not at home for free.

Love 'em. And Dude, you have more subjects on your poetry blog than most folks have on their "I had Cornflakes this morning . . . " blogs.
