Haibun – Decoy

#Haiku Happenings #6: Martha Magenta’s latest #haibun appears in Failed Haiku!

Martha Magenta


I found a maggot, the size of a cat, on the kitchen floor. It mimicked a
cat, grew ears and whiskers and rubbed against my hand
affectionately. But I could still see the rings around its furless body
and its grubby white skin. Then it sank sharp claws into my hand and
tried to take a bite.

recurring dream
the clatter
of the recycling truck
