John J. Dunphy ~ Trois Scifaiku

his pen-packed pocket protector —
a square
in this parallel universe

*

martian colony
walking with my child
I point to a twinkling light
“daddy is from there;
it’s called earth”

*

eyes in the back of her head —
the elementary school’s new teacher
from another planet

 

John J. Dunphy‘s haiku, scifaiku and free verse have appeared in numerous journals over the decades.
