Hey you dropped something
the workman yells to his pal
slaps his arm. Laughter

raucous honks compete
with clank clatter and reverb
of metal shelving

dead and dismembered
thrown down on the dark carpet
then the cart arrives

hoarse screeching-wheel voice
never will sneak up on you
will she? Load her up

rattle flex rattle
metal strips and belly laugh
a sociable mix

haiku chain
