I like it, Kai. Are you the reincarnation of Hosai Ozaki? ;-)
In answer to your question posted on my blog Kai: Hosai Ozaki (1885-1926) was a famous free-verse haiku poet.Hiroaki Sato has published 75% of Hosai Ozaki's haiku in the book "Right under the big sky, I don't wear a hat", the title of which is itself a haiku. Sato has translated the haiku on one line to preserve the original form, rhythm and word order of the Japanese (free-verse haiku don't follow the traditional 17 syllable (5-7-5) pattern of traditional haiku and often to not contain a caesura or major break in the rhythm).Your poem reminds me of Hosai Ozaki's work, which got me fancifully wondering if you were not his reincarnation. ;-)Some of his haiku for you:I cough and am still alonePotatoes eaten by rats, I was asleepThis firefly doesn't glow its hardenedThe blotter has stopped absorbing my writingsI hold a dog, my skin has no hairThe nail I missed cocked its head
