Ghosts

Ghosts
A Haiku
By AJ O’Brien.

Haunted house, quiet.
Ghosts have gone on holiday.
Benidorm. I think.

Fame

Fame
Three Haikus
By AJ O’Brien.

She found Hollywood
Hollywood never found her.
Still waiting tables.

And came her big break.
Goodbye to her loyal friends
she’s a superstar.

Money beyond dreams.
Drugs. She worships opium.
Overdosed. Farewell.

Unjust

Unjust
Three Haikus
By AJ O’Brien.

Gallows sightless, black
fear has arrived, hope has fled.
Thirteen steps to climb.

Blind. A hood of silk,
slip knot caressing her neck.
Preparing to bite.

She is innocent,
a matter of self defence.
And the trapdoor fell.
