Ten anti-haiku produced in the exotic city-state of Hamilton on a cold windy Easter Tuesday


heaped red
and gold
oak leaves on the lawn
as though someone had plucked a rooster here


between raindrops
the puddle repairs itself


cypress saplings
lean
unanimously
to the right


'Hamilton people are too
it's too
tidy down here it's
for example how did those leaves get in a heap
so soon
maybe even
the wind carries a rake here bloody
tightarses - '


favourite regionalist slogan
piss in the river - poison an Aucklander!


COME ON IN BRAND
NEW ANTIQUES



'You're so
boorjwah -
antique shops are the museums
of the people!'
'OK
I'm saying the people have crap
taste'


RARE DEPRESSION ERA GLASS
green as mushed peas thin
as frost -
afraid
to
stare
in
case
it
breaks


kid
crouching
in the corner trying
to outstare
stuffed deer


balanced
across the largest deer's
antlers:
three pool cues,
as thin
and dark
as old rifles
