Haiku Review: Take 2

Well. I’m still injured, but I’ve read six more books. I also woke up at 4:30am for reasons I do not fully understand. So here is an ill-advised Haiku Review Edition!

Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic by Alison Bechdel

A familiar punch

right in the solar plexus.

So glad to re-read.

Adventure Time: Candy Capers by Yuko Ota

This book went through me

over a feast of Pop Tarts.

Yes, I am a child.

A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway

In a flood of strong

masculine non-feelings I

may have grown chest hair.

The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt

No tour de force, but

what a thrill to not put down

a book for hours, days.

Into the Wild by John Krakauer

So many feelings.

I want to shake McCandless

and also hold him.

Torn Apart: The Life of Ian Curtis by Mick Middles and Lindsay Reade

Post-punk insiders

jealously guard their street cred.

Why even publish?
