Haiku Part 4: Appeal

Haiku Part 4: Appeal

I was found guilty
A clock strikes with surreal peace
I think of deceased

In my room, I lie
Surrounded by my denial
For another trial

I eat my last meal
Words cannot tell how I feel
Young death is unreal

Minutes are freedom
Slipping through the hands of some
When will people come?

I see blurry faces
Those who relate to my case
Night time shrouds the place

While people watch, I die
Trying to remain conscious
I only ask 'why?'

This is hard core as well, another great haiku, :) WS

Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
