Headline Haiku: O Yoko/World Peace

eye poem s

Death seizes like fire.
Bombs reach inside:
The dead wind questions.

Yoko Ono begins 2015 with a full page ad in the Sunday New York Times which is a rather cryptic call for World Peace, invoking, among other things, elephants and solar panels.

She’s right about one thing though: we have to start with ourselves, our own actions and words.

And who (meaning me) could resist those eyes?

As to the headline haiku:  I think I’m becoming more attuned to the quirks of poem generator (http://thinkzone.wlonk.com/PoemGen/PoemGen.htm); we’re collaborating well.

    Oh wow. I saw Yoko’s full page ad and didn’t know what to make of it…when you say you collaborated, do you mean she saw your work? She should, if she hasn’t. Incredibly deep and complex, meaningful work, Kerfe. One of your best yet.

    No I just mean I took her other advertisement and made art from it, like I did this time…Yes she is really cryptic this time, isn’t she? But her intentions are good.

    I think you should send her this–the original. Sorry, I did look back and realize it was the other one. You should send her both, she’d like that.
