stealth haiku

Dishonored Haiku

Outsider! A noise!

I dart under a table

I am not ashamed

 ***

Chandelier - bad spot

to hide the bodies of guards

Ends in tragedy

 ***

Hid guard in bookshelf

he squeezed through the wall - like jam!

Don’t know if he lived

 ***

I want Emily.

Can I see her one last time?

Before I’m poisoned?

 ***

Please don’t do it, Daud.

That’s my good stuff you got there.

Weepers can’t use it.

 ***

When Delilah died,

her last words rang in the Void.

“Daud, you piece of shit!”

 ***

I try to climb it -

a line wrapped in barbed wire.

I fast meet the ground.

 ***

How sweet, old Granny

You think I’m your lost husband

You did what to him?

 ***

Never ever swim

Hagfish get indigestion

Bad for everyone

 ***

A piece of paper

fluttering free in the Void

You cannot save her

 ***

I possess the man

Taking his mind, his body

Havelock dies, puking

 ***

“Isn’t this quite fun?”

Says the dark-eyed, floating man

Rats rage under streets

 ***

Why are there clams here?

Half my size, spitting acid

Fuck me for dying

 ***

A voice cries for help

A woman, covered in vines

I don’t buy that shit

 ***

I kind of like it

Shouldering sleeping bodies

Like having a friend

 ***

The Hatters - so chic!

I want their hats so badly

on my graying head

 ***

The hell is blocking?

I don’t know about combat

Shadows are my friend

***

Oh no. Above me -

that tinkling, awful sound

Don’t walk under guards
