Haiku Challenge for Dec. 21: ‘And’

A picture of my door I just took with the noir filter.

Today’s haiku challenge:

My style is the five/seven/five syllable structure. This is my first time trying to do a throughline with all five haiku poems.

Here are my five haiku poems:

and I came to your
home, meant for two; welcome mat
soiled with all my fear.

and ceiling staring,
watching your words dissolve as
bloody stains up there.

and when we were done
I slouched home to the covers;
you stood tall again.

and you went marching
on in the parade, while I
floated without string.

and you left me here
slurping the gutter water.
bacteria friends.
