an autumn haiku

autumn death at sea …

ballerina’s suicide

shocks the dancing world

12-15

divisive chords struck

fragmented song echoes once

notes descend – silence

12-8

this structure dissolves

a once strong frame now broken;

scattered pieces drift

12-2

tight strands unravelled

tension released – frayed, unwound;

hemp in a cold wind

cold fire

21 August, 2019

vision slowly dims

cold fire stabs, twists, numbs, constricts

arteries explode
