3 Haikus by Rose Knapp

Harmonic Haiku

I have the rhythmic melodies pulsating through 
My entire being, sound waves crash 

And flow through me in Western scaled 
Puritanical perfectionist Lisztian staccatos of harmony




Rave Haiku

Sleek skittering silver sharp metallic ice hi hats 
Sink, ricocheting ping pongs of dance until dawn MDMA
Enlightenment underneath the aglow red epileptic strobes 



Estradiol 

Breasts peaking through the matriarchal veil
Divine hormones, divine sparkling pure feelings 

Subtly singing in archangelic seraphic polyphonic 
Choruses of the radiant feminine goddesses
