Haiku I - III

You can blame Salinger – or a little more accurately, Seymour Glass – for this. It’s Saturday night. I haven’t felt so low in quite a while. Now I am having a crack at haiku, which you’ll forgive me for being a little embarrassed about. Here are three. (To go even further, some might say I was pursuing greater awareness of rhythm and economy. If I’m going to visit the same restaurant every Saturday night, I may as well try everything on the menu, right?)


I

because I am not
ready to end it all – I
swat the mosquito



II

nothing took my breath
away; it sang out at last
getting into bed



III

my dog’s paws are not
even – the right is outweighed
by a big tumour
