#haiku collection

A few I have written recently (to my shame, I don’t know what the plural of ‘haiku’ is).

shock

mouth frames a silent
shape into the ultimate
defeat of language.

thirst

gulping down bottles
brimming with you yet I still
have deserts for lips.

eyes closed

when eyes shut, you paint
my world in hues of jade smiles
and cherry laughter.

switches

she wanders round rooms,
fingers flicking morse code lights;
no doorways darkened.

reading

I excavate words,
the archaeology of
ancient souls laid bare

wounded

you: an open wound
cauterised daily with lime
and tequila tears.
