Just when I needed an end

Indigenous Antipodean top predator welcomes introduced placental competition

I'll bite you, baby!
Marsupial carnivore,
it's what I do best!

Little fuzzy duck
you hop SO cute from the pond
and shit everywhere.

looking down is looking up

Saw the Deco show
Laughed out loud at the Hiaku
Curved, girly edges

radios in bakelite -
and jo baker's boobs

No more Big Brother!
How will we fill the void?
With cake, silly!

haiku poems are great
but sometimes they don't make sense

you and your evil ways
a curse on you

For it to make sense,
common language must be shared.
It isn’t. So what?

All the best years of my life
No syllables left

Responsorial haiku

in response to Dead on the doorstep [26.06.08]

What maudlin rubbish!
Dead cats should be for breakfast,
not soppy poems!

Terry the Thylacine

A Thylacine trilogy

'Though not yet extinct,
I have been infected with
the Haiku Virus.

My days tick away
each more defined than the last
by three-line poems.

Flickering footage:
these bars, those rules, my prison
yet in it I live.
