Puppet Girl Sleeps

Puppet Girl
Five Haiku for All Her Children by Elsa Garcia

Athena shakes humans
from her hair of tangled vines
and thinks of dad’s dandruff.

Goliath stands erect.
David throws paper tantrums.
Medusa came too late.

Medea juggles
her cinder and smoke children
without squashing any.

Mars and Saturn collide.
Gaia’s dress starts bleeding.
Alice plays with dolls.

The puppet girl sleeps.
Sandman offspring duke it out.
God claps loudly.
