recommended: light packing

Elmedin Kadric, a regular contributor to is/let, has a fine new haiku collection: light packing. You can get your copy for $15 (plus shipping) through his website or from the publisher, Red Moon Press. I’ll second what Lee Gurga wrote about Kadric on the back cover: “One of the most interesting minds writing haiku today.” Here are a couple that stood for me that I hadn’t seen before:

all the seasons

sitting

by her deathbed

.

hard rain

the old butcher shop

open again

.
