half way through, haiku by Jörgen Johansson
half way through, Johansson’s second full-length collection with Red Moon Press, features haiku, senryu and tanka, and includes poems written in Swedish (with English translation) as well as English. He is perhaps best known for his humorous work, but there underlies even these a serious intent. As Michael Dylan Welch writes “As deliberately ‘unfinished’ poems, the best haiku ask much of readers to finish them, not because these poems are insufficient, but because of how much they often imply. The haiku and tanka in half way through give readers much to complete, much to be taken all the way through.”
