happy birthday, Ed

It's Ed Markowski's birthday today. Ed's given us some of America's very best baseball and sports haiku and senryu. See American Sports Haiku by Ed Markowski at f/k/a. But, his oeuvre is far broader and deeper than his sports poetry -- as you can see by clicking the links at Ed's f/k/a archives page. Best wishes to my very good friend from Auburn Hills, Michigan!

. . . two reprise poems from Palm Sundays past:
the boys giggle
when the priest says “ass” –
Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday
we polish off
the Easter candy
