Haiku by Alexis Rhone Fancher

Haiku For My Beloved
I ask for breakfast,
Instead, he brings me flowers.
Am I still hungry?

He Searches For Reasons
material girl?
that was your complaint, right? Like
a car’s a bad thing?

The Plot Thickens
Once betrayed, twice shy.
Says he’s not that kind of guy.
Should I believe him?

Cruel Haiku To A Former Lover
there’s a touch of the
poet in everyone - well,
everyone but you.

How The Artist Sees The World
It’s about the light.
How it slants entire worlds
With its opinion.
Writer/photographer Alexis Rhone Fancher’s latest chapbook is Gidget Goes To The Ghetto. Her “pillow book,” explicit, came out in 2010. She studies with the poet, Jack Grapes, and is a member of his L.A. Poets & Writers Collective. Her work has been published or is forthcoming in Mas Tequila Review, Gutter Eloquence Magazine, Cultural Weekly, Tell Your True Tale, Downer Magazine, Bare Hands Anthology, Ireland, The Sun Magazine, Spark Off Rose, The Poetry Juice Bar and elsewhere. Her erotic thriller, Annie’s Sinful Nature, awaits publication.


  1. I love the poems -- haiku is so rich: thanks for spreading a bit of the wealth around!

  2. Waiting for a breath
    of inspiration and then
    Alexis Haiku!

  3. To be honest... I don't like Haiku but there is quite a charm and tang with these five by Alexis

    Keep the pen flowing..........Mitch ~x~
