Haiku Hotline Vol. 3: Flashback

The Haiku Hotline is a miniature weekly poetry journal, solicited via text & voicemail. You can listen to this installment at the end of this episode.

Haiku Hotline Vol. 3: Flashback was curated by Chen Chen. We highly recommend Chen’s new book, “When I Grow Up I Want to Be a List of Further Possibilities.”



A bedsheet
full of holes—window
to a snow-globe house.



Eyes roll back
to when I was a house cat
chewing my Scotch-tape halo.



Already the snow is letting up.
In each home there are beautiful songs.
Any one of them could have been sung by me.
