the upsetters

haiku: no absolution

old friend, don't tempt me
your shadowy wiles offer
no absolution

haiku: lapping ankle deep

i have succumbed:
seductive depression waves
lapping ankle deep

haiku: light fades into dust

fie vacuum cleaner!
sucked soul lodged deep in your bowel
light fades into dust

for waa

still looking
over my
for you
- despite
the tarnish
we collected
the idea
of you
up the road
up the stairs
- makes me

haiku: seems like

seems like
only yesterday i was
in love with you

haiku: disposable love

disposable love
barely meets expiry date
once un-shrinkwrapped

earth's answer

Earth raised up her head
From the darkness dread and drear,
Her light fled,
Stony, dread,
And her locks covered with grey despair.

"Prisoned on watery shore,
Starry jealousy does keep my den
Cold and hoar;
Weeping o'er,
I hear the father of the ancient men.

"Selfish father of men!
Cruel, jealous, selfish fear!
Can delight,
Chained in night,
The virgins of youth and morning bear?

"Does spring hide its joy,
When buds and blossoms grow?
Does the sower
Sow by night,
Or the plowman in darkness plough?

"Break this heavy chain,
That does freeze my bones around!
Selfish, vain,
Eternal bane,
That free love with bondage bound." 

- William Blake
