Ten darker haiku

DARKER HAIKU

vodka hangover
lost on
the tundra

depression
filling in
the form

leukaemia
the life
he might have led

the silver trees
from
the hospital window

school reunion
he complains
about his wife

the youngest person
in the
rehabilitation ward

taking my young wife
to identify
the body

she said no
walking
uphill

the woman
always early
at the bottle shop

the people
dying
at my age
