KILLER HAIKU, ACT TWO

by Amy Milligan on February 14, 2012

Specially scribed and submitted for your scrutiny, a second set of seventeen sick syllables suitable for The Spleen.

GARY RIDGWAY

Sea-Tac prostitutes
Ended their dates with Gary
In the Green River
***

SMILEY FACE MURDERS (Hat tip to Alice Swanberg)

Accidental deaths?
Or kills marked by graffiti?
Schrödinger’s Killer
***

JEFFREY DAHMER

Tried making zombies
Out of seventeen men but
Made them lunch instead
***

ALBERT FISH*

Embedding needles
In his own groin was the least
Of his fetishes
***

BITTAKER AND NORRIS

Proud co-owners of
“Murder Mack” (their cargo van
And partner in crime)
***

HENRY LEE LUCAS

Want to be famous?
Take a page from Henry’s book:
Confess then recant
***

*Editor’s note: No relation. Honest.

Amy Milligan lives, works, and counts to seventeen in Wheaton, Illinois
