    Ah, I remember this!

    Definitely a micro novel of a haiku, and a good example of what negative space can accomplish in the haiku form too!


    sultry evening
    liquid from the take out bag
    runs near the victim

    This is a singularly subtle and beautiful haiku. It conveys image and thought alike. One of the most appealing and thought-provoking haiku poems I have read.

    As evocative a haiku as I ever remember reading. It's bittersweet, poignant, elegant, complex yet simply phrased.
