Haiku Princess: Poems in Ascending Order of Profanity
H. O. Tanager, author
Original haiku plus vintage images = Haiku Princess. Traditional haiku - at least the most interesting of the genre - include the "volta," or "turn," a rhetorical shift or dramatic change in thought or emotion. Pairing modern, slantwise thoughts with Victorian images, Haiku Princess expands on the idea of the "volta" of a poem to include a visual layer... because it just seemed right. Paired with Victorian illustrations, conveniently ordered from least-to-most profane (as interpreted by the author), and written by a Haiku Deathmatch Champion, these poems have been specially selected not to bore you, and perhaps make you wise.
