city shorts
haiku by chris major


Outside the takeaway,
bottles and discarded chip-trays,
mashed meat, ketchup squirts.

beggar (xmas 2003)

That wet sunken face,
its breath hanging in steamy puffs -
spirit being quenched?


The weak morning sun
lights a wall of spray-paint abuse.
It gives the only 'FUCK' .
