a haunted house dreaming of Helsinki

#Haiku Happenings #6: The Other Bunny presents a #haibun by Michael O’Brien!

the other bunny

‘You’re not necessarily an arsehole if you don’t vote.’
‘The haunted house must always have a hidden or secret room.’
‘Sometimes staying in bed is a good thing. Sometimes staying in bed is a just and right thing.’
‘The secret is the betrayal of knowledge or rather reality’s betrayal of knowing in regards to the knower, that would be us – the owner’s of the haunted house.’
‘Make sure your hair is suitable for such an endeavor. Just come at sides. Paint shapes.’
‘Any colour, really. Ready for dreams and suitcases.’
‘Dreams can be – landscapes, battles, empty gin bottles, tonic wine and hair getting in one’s eyes.’
‘Yes.’
‘The world like the secret room is both there and not.’
‘Knowing and yet not quite.’

like grey hairs
time moves
