Kevin Doran

haiku noir/horrorku

clawed to shreds
by a bear . . . your toeprints
in the bloody snow


2D screen humans
sky water eye static-shot
‘ad’ mind warp, tube eyes


dinosaur stroking
its near-extinct erection –
tight, firm kitten butt

triptych haiku

having sex –
picking up
your breasts

milk in her left breast
into wildflowers
in my mouth

tree trunk with tights
screams death threats –
another ex-girlfriend

winter sickness –
the alarm clock

christmas day
            her bum
            cobwebs swing

her frosty voice
            in bed
            under the umbrella
