A Day at the Festival: A Haiku Sequence

two Chinese dressed
in Lederhosen and Dirndls
Munich's blue sky

Italians sing
Bavarian drinking songs
a German girl's smile

Oktoberfest
a sea of human heads
inside the beer tent

House of Horrors
hand in hand an old couple
giggling

slanted sunlight
in my gingerbread heart
her bite mark

a roller coaster
against the sunset sky
Sayonara
