Melanesian Stinkiness Haiku Triptych

Red stain on your lips

A sign the inside festers:

Halitosis lurks

*

Grimestained flannel shirt

Covers something rotten:

a diabetic limb

*

Solar water tank

Days spent without sunshine:

I also smell quite bad

*

NOTE: observations and debates on the true nature of the haiku form are beyond the scope of this website and are best conducted elsewhere, preferably far away from me.
