Haiku 872, Haiku 873, Haiku 874, Haiku 875

From the poetry collection published in 2021 containing poems written in 2020, The Immediate and No Sooner.

Haiku 872

the moon overlaps
the fading planet’s orbit
eyeing a conquest

Haiku 873

with unerring aim
fudge crumbs mark a smeary trail
on her new white blouse

Haiku 874

Put a lid on it.
Back away from the coffin.
Dead of the night.

Haiku 875

discolored lemon
sharp knife slices the blemish
astringent silence
