Outlaw Poet

Kentucky Haiku

1
In Kentucky
always
I go too far

2
In Kentucky
I pass fast
on one lane bridges

3
In Kentucky
my skin turns
blue & I holler

4
In Kentucky
smoke the grass
sip the woman

5
In Kentucky
I take deadly
risks daily

6
In Kentucky
I won’t live
much longer

7
In Kentucky
I feel like
I’m finally dyin

8
In Kentucky
my Mom
was a prisoner

9
In Kentucky
my Dad
hoed tobacco

10
In Kentucky
I climb to top
of maple tree

11
In Kentucky
I wait for relatives
from Louisville

12
In Kentucky
I don’t go
to the Derby

13
In Kentucky
springtime lie down
in orange sagebrush

14
In Kentucky
with old Blue
watch white clouds

15
In Kentucky
I married
the real Pippi

16
In Kentucky
my heart
was healed

17
In Kentucky
moon shines
comets are loud

18
In Kentucky
music
is mountainous

19
In Kentucky
my body burns
on funeral pyre

20
In Kentucky
my life travels
round the world

21
In Kentucky
I am
no more
