from the uterus

bitter ink is my blood type

tales of darkness come

Mere miles from here
Others march to stop the war
Yet I do this

Kelly Parra said...

Beneath dark colors
Claw for release, breath the air
Flying free with words

Jaye Wells said...

Despite all efforts
Hypnosis and therapy
A freak, I remain

Bill Cameron said...

An empty place calls,
A sheet of clean white paper
It begs for color

anne frasier said...

thanks so much for the lovely contributions!!

S. W. Vaughn said...

Oooh, what a cool idea! I like reading these... wicked!

Okay, here's mine:

Bugger off, people!
I won't tell your stories. No!...
Fine. Where is that pen?

Julia Buckley said...

It's revision time;
A keyboard of fucking doom
Under my fingers.

Oh, Pardon my French!
I'm mainly Julie Andrews
in a Joan Jett world.

Heather Harper said...

unfunny secrets
fate is a mother fucker
laugh at my expense

emeraldcite said...

brooding in silence
the dark is afraid of me
because I am it

Daniel Hatadi said...

after many years
learning to play the guitar
i just want to write

anne frasier said...

these are all wonderful! thank you so much! funny, touching, honest, painful, spooky.

Heather Harper said...

My hands became raw from clapping.

I still do math on my fingers, too. ;)

Jer said...

My pen is broken
Where is an alternative
A computer wins

Hulles said...

emeraldcite said...

thanks, hulles. I'm a big fan of haiku.

angie said...

I don't do haiku
But I will dye my hair blue
And ride a scooter.

See, there's a reason I don't do haiku!


S. W. Vaughn said...

Oh, Angie, I love that! :-) That little rhyme is perfect. *G*

bekbek said...

From birth, too often
I've asked how hard can it be?
With surprise, I learn.

Mary Louisa said...

I've got nothin. But I have to say these are incredible poems! When I finally do come up with a good one, Anne, I'll post mine, too.

anne frasier said...

Jaye Wells said...

Once when the sun set
I watched until it was gone
I'm still there waiting

angie said...

Oh Stephen, you just made my day!


anne frasier said...

stephen and angie:

noir haiku. heh.

another good idea -- a stocking stuffer book of noir haiku. i think this is doable for christmas 2006.

anne frasier said...

er, 2007.

bekbek said...

Remember the noir haiku project of 2007? You know, that's when Anne Frasier launched her Editor in Chief career.


anne frasier said...

hah! so you agree it could be a cool project? i might have to think about this a little more. i know some people who've worked with some of the local small presses on small projects like that. hmmmm....
