the haiku marathon (part 12, the final mile)

17-12-08
i blush at your glance
turn my head just a little
and swallow my heart

18-12-08
when your man slew me
on a card in my pocket
he left your number

19-12-08
i am breaking through
are you concentrating hard?
you can hear my thoughts

20-12-08
lost in the market
a blur of panicked shoppers
nippng at my sides

21-12-08
the artifact shines
retrieved in the museum
locked behind glass

22-12-08
under a red sun
those four brown children gathered
to put out the fire

23-12-08
his body smoldered
because he was made of fire
beware him wood men

24-12-08
woodpecker tapdance
squirrels crashed the sex party
wrens clean up the mess

25-12-08
there was this dude yeah
born in some barn so they say
put on a right show

26-12-08
rain it came howling
after a day hot as hell
drove the bugs away

27-12-08
in between these days
troll squatters lodged with me
made swags of my rug

28-12-08
bess put for dinner
overheard the cardinal
plotting her downfall

29-12-08
miserly nigel
keeps all his change in his socks
jangles when he walks

30-12-08
ragtime invaders
dropped some scat on planet earth
blues boys’ bebop bombs

31-12-08
big king muffin top
swaps stories with dozer duck
fond reminiscing

01-01-09
black winds lift my wings
bear me on to unknown shores
where fates mass waiting

02-01-09
eggs and sausages
sizzle and jump in the pan
the toast leaps ready

03-01-09
devils in blue jeans
knocking heads collecting dues
heaven help the damned

04-01-09
shoeless and broken
she kneels before the old man
anoints him with tears

05-01-09
come under my wing
i’ll keep you in dark like veal
never seen again

06-01-09
yesterday we died
today we’re still here it seems
or somewhere between

07-01-09
bad arse sun blinks twice
behind a white muslin cloud
a break in his stare

08-01-09
the butterflies swarm
devour the sugar cities
red princess flees south

09-01-09
raoul and jimmy
run across the desert sands
looking for icecream

10-01-09
a beer in the shade
watching monsters rise dripping
striding from the surf

11-01-09
bead girl collapses
the ambulance arrives late
by which time she’s gone

12-01-09
what do you do, john
at the end in the long dark night
when all your sand’s gone?

13-01-09
prince biggington brown
hit a land mine with his cock
blew his balls apart

14-01-09
greasy fingers clutch
lips smack and slurp tongue flicks
napkin restores peace

15-01-09
the ball bounces once
is hit back across the net
and bounces once more

16-01-09
when the lino splits
as the fridge wheel slips across
face reddens in rage

17-01-09
strawberry pancakes
jealous of her short cousin
plots bloody murder

18-01-09
the final haiku
in a year of stammering
looking for meaning

the haiku marathon (part 12, the final mile)
