Marsh Muirhead

FOUR HAIKU

third day hosting in-laws
I remind them
about the poison ivy

 

 

caterpillar’s odyssey
same fate
any direction

 

 

after sex
the blow-up doll and I
share an e-cigarette

 

 

wood tick
in the middle of my back
no wife

from Rattle #47, Spring 2015
Tribute to Japanese Forms

Marsh Muirhead: “Haiku and haibun are a great place to store and flex the notions and images that come to us all the time and everywhere. They are sometimes starts to longer pieces, or as finished writing they serve as a kind of journaling, whether as fact or fiction, about our own lives or others we imagine.”
