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.

Insect Parade

Dung Beetle Sisyphus, realizing he is destined to repeat forever the meaningless task of rolling balls of dung up hills, revolts and covers his dung ball with flowers. Other insects, appreciating the journey is what it's all about, follow the enlightened beetle thus creating an insect parade.
