Haiku - Eel Twists And Twists - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

eel
twists, twists, twists
on a straight line

fishing -
the lucky man gets
The unlucky fish

his lips the same
shade as her lipstick
after the strong kiss

adulterated pleasure
mixing grade A rice with B
for the price of A

Morning tea
An overeager fly dips into it
Then waves its legs at me

below the waterfall
her tresses becomes a waterfall
over her bodice

stubbing his cigarette
lecturer goes to teach students
about harmful smoking
