This is Birk Andersson’s first collection of haiku in English. Several of the poems have been translated from his earlier books in Swedish.
Andersson has had several English haiku published in haiku journals and anthologies, but many of those poems are not in this book, because friends, relatives, colleagues, audiences, and himself, did not appreciate them enough. Instead, this book is filled with anarchic haiku, that hopefully can spread haiku to the masses.
