Senryu – Failed Haiku

 

strawberry moon
the builder’s butt
sunburned

 

conkers
his adam’s apple
up and down

 

he bends over
to pick a pumpkin
harvest moon

 

expanding frontier
he loosens his belt
another notch

 

immortal
the mosquito
I killed yesterday

 

blind date
only the cabbage
on his teeth
