5 haiku

by Jerome Berglund

pus obscuring

selvportrett lancing

boils pock-marked topography

lunar rove maria


predicament to

reflect on, resignation

flatly rejected

activated charcoal

retches activated

charcoal the picture of a

sorry soul possessed



must become parched

must become parched for

water to taste good, famished

savor day-old crust

tune in

can tumbler stick the

landing, close strong flying colors

tune in to find out
