Five Haikus Before Seven Minute Shower


Hands strangle cereal

Cold white blood trickles down chin

Morning ghost breakfast


Atomic bombs kill

Dissonant music albums

Carbon shadows gripe


Bodies are trouble

Bad stories, stretched out, waiting

Bus stops, no buses


Japanese painter

Organs hanging on streaked wall

Colors turn silent


Mind retreats to bed

Armies attack in red lines

The night sues for peace

  1. # 3 resonated with me: busses eventually hit some bumpy terrain, dings the chassis, loosens some gaskets, veer off onto unscheduled route, could be trouble. Hands firm on wheel, repair shop 2 clicks…
    more Haikus please Duke!
