Cracked Haiku #8


"In the August grass
Struck by the last rays of sun
The cracked tea cup screams"

A Haiku poem by Etheridge Knight, who got his start writing poetry in prison. One interpretation of this poem is that it is from the perspective of a black male prisoner, looking out his prison window, likening the situation of an incarcerated life to nature.
