I once heard the great John Cooper Clarke recite a haiku. It went something like:

To express oneself
in seventeen syllables
is very diffic

Now seven men on horses
Then five in the dust

Iron clears leather,
another fight decided.
Death costs little here.

In order to be a real good Haiku, the words must express some opposition (old/young, warm/cold, silence/sound etc.) That’s why they’re often about seasons, about the passing of time, about a sudden insight in life’s vicissitudes

Winter is coming
My heart is getting warmer
When you are around

Morning dew settles
Discarded leaves lay scattered
As I awaken

I’ve seen JCC a number of times in various places over the years.
Saw him first around 1977 at the Marquee club in London. Caught him a few other times in London as well as once in Sydney Australia. Last time was a couple of years ago at a local theatre here during an Essex Literature Festival. Despite his Salford roots JCC is an Essex resident these days. He had many lean years due to drug and alcohol problems but seems to be back on form these days and writing some great stuff again.

Your cunt reeks of death
Where dark and light don’t differ
Zombie fucking slut

A boy from Holland
Wrote a haiku full of dirt
