the haiku marathon (part 3)

13-03-08
grind me to powder
inject me, snort me, smoke me
your new summer drug

14-03-08
slinking home at dark
unnoticed by satellites
cat scratched my shadow

15-03-08
the sky is my bed
i’ll hang my shirt on the moon
clouds for my pillow

16-03-08
alone, ask the night -
without family, friends, work,
name, art – who you are

17-03-08
hot horror hell-house
hammerhead hysteria
help holy host help!

18-03-08
george bush is ahab
and terror is his white whale
DON’T call me ishmael

19-03-08
apples mandarins
get your juicy oranges
avocados here!

20-03-08
River of noise roars
The night is punctuated
With backfiring cars

21-03-08
the safety net frays
who will catch us when we fall?
mend these broken bones?

22-03-08
blue boy flying home
swallows the heart in his mouth
landing gear comes down

23-03-08
can you tell me sir
just where my poor girl has gone
with her eyes of coal

24-03-08
his shell spider cracks
and all these useless horses
scatter whinnying

25-03-08
my head is broken
the goo is slowly leaking
into your handbag

26-03-08
ball spins as it falls
his hand comes up and taps it
it circles the rim

27-03-08
fate chastise me not
i but go where you send me
the wind at my back

28-03-08
iron wood and sweat
and two leather hands to plow
this ragged red earth

29-03-08
frozen fingers pause
i’m three months behind schedule
crack knuckles and start

30-03-08
he takes a feather
rides in it across oceans
to her final shore

31-03-08
who’s come a knockin’
on my door this evening?
no one but the moon

01-04-08
red brown leaves skitter
crows gather under grey skies
the rain comes down hard

02-04-08
two hundred arms crook
the tram jostles on its tracks
newspapers rustle

03-04-08
i strip to my skin
and streak into the rainstorm
the wind rips through me

04-04-08
his fresh ears hunger
they savour every word
that falls from her mouth

05-04-08
all the king’s horses
cannot unbreak me or stop
these gingerbread tears

06-04-08
i’m riding the rail
with a hatful of strangers
hankering for pills

07-04-08
“you have brittle bones”
the doctor blinks twice
and wiggles her pen

08-04-08
mr bad news scowls
drums his fingers on the desk
pretends to listen

09-04-08
for him rain at night
for her dancing in the park
together apart

10-04-08
the gel goes on cold
dries hard and cracks when i stretch
this stuff better work

11-04-08
the final countdown
stuck in my head round and round
for five fucking days

12-04-08
bootleg DVD
frozen at chapter fifteen
how does the film end?
