Six Haiku Poems: Thou Shalt Not Steal

Illustration by Poet Rummager

I grabbed the apple.
From the neighbor’s tree, it hung-
too ripe to ignore.

I see you there, thief.
Mr. Jones’ silhouette flinched.
He grasped his cane tight.

Oh, this juicy treat!
Where can I conceal my sin?
My mouth whispered, Here.

Parted my mouth wide
with tongue wrapped around the orb.
The snake in me cheered.

Slid down my throat whole –
enlarged my Adams Apple.
Damn that Granny Smith.

I heard my skull crack.
Mr. Jones wiped his cane clean.
No more stealing fruits!

  1. Mr. Jones and that cane. What a freak. Takes two to tango, though.
    Great collaboration, and I’m a huge fan of the wicked apple illustration. Sometimes I wish I could get tattoos of your art all over my body.

  2. Sorry, I’m so late, I’ve been away for a while… This is just excellent work… like a painting where everything needed is inside the behold and each part tells its story. I need to work on my images for they pale in comparison to yours. Thx. jc
