A thief is a thief

A thief is a thief
Can’t even trust a brother

evokes lesser sympathy
bright local babies

no seats on city bound train
suburb spillover

Spot Haiku 34

close air hold its own
in winter's final weather
pale light breaks through glass

Catherine Dineen

In Australia
my right to equality
is traded for votes.

Chris Gill

Control the ego
Protect it and subsume it
Looking for balance

Simon Patience

rain reigns night and day
tyranny of wet and grey
when'll you go away?

Dawn Mok

Everyday is Christmas
Every night is New Year’s eve

Sade in my house

*contains a lyric written by Sade Adu and Martin Ditcham

drunk and fat I see
it must be that time of year
Jesus' birthday

Sun pouring through the window
Sweating my ass off

Three steps forward, two steps back
Its sweet time, taken

Jeff Patterson

on number-poets happen -
Strange perhaps, but true
