Five Haikus Before Seven Minute Shower

1

Hands strangle cereal

Cold white blood trickles down chin

Morning ghost breakfast

2

Atomic bombs kill

Dissonant music albums

Carbon shadows gripe

3

Bodies are trouble

Bad stories, stretched out, waiting

Bus stops, no buses

4

Japanese painter

Organs hanging on streaked wall

Colors turn silent

5

Mind retreats to bed

Armies attack in red lines

The night sues for peace

    more Haikus please Duke!
