Direct Pressure

#Haiku Happenings #5: Ron Lavalette’s latest #haibun for #dVersePoets #HaibunMonday!

Scrambled, Not Fried

It’s Haibun Monday again, and American Haikai Master Frank J Tassone asks us to join him at the dVerse Poets Pub and create/share a Haibun (prose/haiku combo) incorporating some reference to ‘Pressure’

He tries to remember his training, even though it’s probably already too late. He peels off his sweatshirt, gathers it into a balled-up mass, kneels down beside her and attempts to apply direct pressure to the wound. She’s on her back, so it’s not immediately apparent that the exitwound is six times larger than the point of entry he’s trying to plug. He wonders what they’ll say to her mother.

the next bullet’s his
facing the future alone
—rejected lover—
