    on the wrong side of history graveyard tulips

    buying time by Elmedin Kadric
    Redmoon Press ISBN: 978-1-936848-94-2

    Sometimes it’s hard to bear, just like a beggar’s cough reminding him that someone is always alone, just as the famous road-weary poet Hosai Ozaki, over nine decades ago with his brief but poignant

    "coughing alone even" [trans. Alan Summers].

    Kadric’s own one line haiku are a showcase of how a monostich can carry the weight of the world and compare with the Japanese poet’s iconic and lonely coughing verse. He displays the deadly impotence of war carried across various one line haiku.

    My monastic is a nod to the senior military officer who wrote a poem after he witnessed the 911 Pentagon attack. His poem is now part of the renga and art project led by poet Bob Holman and artist Jeff Koons.
