House of Haiku

spews his self-loathing
evaded maturity
offered my friendship

A haiku dedicated to the immature and unhappy Public Works worker who, while on the job, made several homophobic comments towards me — based on my manner of dress, his assumptions, his hatred and his self-loathing.




Haiku is a form of poetry usually inspired by nature, which embraces simplicity. We invite all poetry lovers to have a go at composing Haiku. Be warned. You could become addicted.
