Haiku (21, 22, 24, 30 & 31) - Poem by Richard Wright
On winter mornings
The candle shows faint markings
Of the teeth of rats.
With a twitching nose
A dog reads a telegram
On a wet tree trunk.
The webs of spiders
Sticking to my sweaty face
In the dusty woods.
A bloody knife blade
Is being licked by a cat
At hog-killing time.
In the falling snow
A laughing boy holds out his palms
Until they are white.
