Morning Haiku -Virginie Colline

Illustration by plattlandtmann


sun drowned in grey clouds
a big yolk separator
that’s what the sky needs

small gurgling of pipes
he rises on his elbow
she fluffs the pillow

a point-blank question
just before the coffee kick
trigger happy hour

a burned slice of bread
popping out of the toaster
as if in answer
