“Four Haiku” by Marsh Muirhead

Marsh Muirhead


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

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.”
