Thea St. Omer
Poet
I wrote this poem after attending a previous Syracuse Poster Project ceremony.

“A haiku,” I thought, “five syllables, seven syllables, five syllables. Hhhhmmm. That's my birthday (5/12). Maybe that's the universe's sign that I should try my hand at writing one.”

That very night / early next morning, or soon thereafter, I stole from my house with my dog, as was our custom then, and in the distance, another dog broke the supreme silence and spoke softly to us.

Sleeping streets awake
in the faint whisper of night.
A distant dog barks.
