Five Idiom Cut-up Haiku

He’s easy pickings
He’s a fish out of water
His number is up

A thing of the past
batting for the other side
Too funny for words

I spoke too soon, thought
she was a babe in the woods
wham bam thank you ma’am

I’ll tear your heart out
she’ll be caught in the crossfire
over my dead body

Cheats never prosper
from time immemorial
all over the earth

These haiku were written using the following cut-up technique:

~ An experimental poem created using the following cut-up technique:

  1. Find any source of text. (the first result from a random web search was used to create the above poem)
  2. Write down any verbs found in the text.  Also take any adjacent adverb, if one exists.
  3. Convert one paragraph of source text into a single line of poem text.
  4. Consider retaining other useful verb-adjacent parts of speech, but do not retain any nouns, pronouns or adjectives.
  5. Retain all verb-adjacent punctuation and capitalization.
  6. Do not add any punctuation or capitalization.
  7. Eliminate all forms of “to be”: be, was, were, are, is, will, etc…, except where “is” appears as an infinitve form of a verb, such as “is thinking” or “is sitting.”

Sense Haiku

An all seeing eye
eats voyeuristically
sweat beads off my skin

Deaf ears desire sounds
lovers’ thighs on silken lies
between night’s creatures

Where hollow fingers
drum forth tight wrapped visions
lost fire touch now please

The nose finds it first
swimming winds sexscented lust
all inner gears turn

Snake tongue curls with hiss
suffocates victim on sheets
forgets eye memories

Re: Current, Knight, Mare

The dream waits
on plate
and eye
consume it a
gain in mourning

Each eye

on evening’s shore
you see the
waver over
my stone

The dream
squirming in
echoing eyes
eye just want
to kill it
again and a

I want to tell
instead eye see
and say
nothing is
wrong [meaning right]

live in
never leave
dream drilling
between ribs
twist turn

love in

make a box
the Knight
on fire
water rushes be
neath where only
the image

The dream

closing her red lips

Blue tunnel
at pit of sky’s stomach
white at bottom.

Rainbowed snakes
squirm past
as sparks to night.

escape into
shimmering darkness.

May I long
for passed
spring’s scent
