TABLOID HAIKU! Is a collection of haiku based on tabloid headlines. The inspiration for composing these haiku came to me one afternoon while standing in a supermarket checkout line listening to a fellow customer read loudly from the Weekly World News. Off the wall and beyond the fringe pulp poetry resonated down the supermarket aisles as the man read through the paper, then folded it neatly and placed it back on the rack. Haiku immediately came to mind, since the utter strangeness of many of these gems gave them an almost koan-like quality.
