Lunch Break Haiku

February 1, 1986

Elegant lady
floats through McDonald's like a
swan in a bathtub.

Going through my old journals, I'm reminded that I used to try to write at least one poem every day.  They served the same function as an illustration — a sketch in the margin — nothing more, nothing less.  I'd jot them down on my lunch break.  On February 1, 1986 this haiku appeared.  Not a bridal gown but she was wearing a white dress, white shoes with high heels.
  Untouchable poise
