Brenda Roberts: Haiku

catching the grandaddy  
of all catfish  
tall tales growing bigger an old washtub
  filled with creek mud
  and crawdads
on the side of the highway  
a dog house  
shaped like an armadillo outside the circle of headlights
  the goat's green eyes
  and fireflies
the outhouse  
filled with horse feed  
indoor plumbing
