Three Blue Beans in a Blue Bladder

Another Year in Haiku

Hamish Ironside

The latest in IRON Press's long running series of small haiku books, to accompany the reprint of the author's previous IRON Press haiku collection, Our Sweet Little Time, which also covered a year of the poet's life.

This new collection ranges from the traditional to the experimental, combining striking imagery with philosophical reflection.

an old diary
starring people I barely remember
including myself.

on my idle arm
a pair of flies
meet, mate and split
