William Cullen Jr.

Just Before Going to Sleep

In a world of constant information
from TV’s, cell phones and PC’s
the man sitting on a park bench
just feeding the birds with crumbs
from a sandwich on his lunch break
is the only news I recall from today.

William Cullen Jr., a veteran who works at a social services non-profit in New York City, has recently had haiku sequences appear in Frogpond and Modern Haiku.
