contractions, haiku by kjmunro


Categories: ,


kjmunro, editor of the popular Haiku Windows and Haiku Dialogue online collaborations, and a widely-recognized and oft-awarded poet, offers her first full-length collection of haiku in contractions. The multiple readings of the title is fully intended, and suggests not only the range of topics to be found here, but also the challenge of how to read each one. A compelling debut you won’t want to miss.

“In contractions kjmunro sets a milepost for contemporary haiku and senryu. The work in this volume is fresh, remarkably precise and — well — contracted. In a very few innovative and well-chosen words she can drill to the core of an observation and split it open for all to see. . . This is the direction 21st-century haiku must take.” — Charles Trumbull
