Slouched in a corner,
of a dingy juke joint, a
young man learns the blues.

A Wind-Swept Friday Afternoon at the Haikulodeon

 

Here's this week's heap of haikus:

 

He buried his fear
in the pleats of mother's skirt.
( ... wiped his nose there too.)

 Fear is a fabric
that folds under stress, and when
