Monoku-Cherita Dyad: 27 words
By Peter Jastermsky

Untitled: [black holes]

 

	black holes not a star at forgiveness 



what to say                       
years after our passing? 

memories fill with silence 
and we are better 
or worse 

than you remember 

 

 

Author’s Note:

The monoku-cherita dialectic is a dance of possibility and truth as contained in the heightened engagement between the two poems.

Peter Jastermsky
Issue 12, March 2022

is an award-winning cherita poet, a Best of the Net and Dwarf Star nominee, and the author of seven books of haiku-based writing. Titles include Steel Cut Moon (Cholla Needles Press, 2019), and three from Yavanika Press: No Velcro Here (2019), The Silence We Came For (2020), and Fingerbone Sky (2021). His short-form writing has appeared in many journals and anthologies, including Failed Haiku, Haibun Today, KYSO Flash, MacQueen’s Quinterly, The Aurorean, and The Cherita among others.

In 2017, Peter invented a new haiku-centered linked form called “split sequence.” His recent book, Just Dust and Stone (Velvet Dusk Publishing, May 2021), is a collection of collaborative split sequences co-written with Bryan Rickert. Peter lives with his family in the high desert of southern California, USA.
