Two haikus by William Kherbek

4 February 2012

Crows pecking the cracks
in the pavements, now and then
a black beak touches life.

///

How does Clapton Pond
Stay so fresh and clean? Some-
one comes to clean it.

These are two of my favourites from a series of haikus by William Kherbek included in the second Friary Road House Editions Poetry anthology, published last autumn. Variously thoughtful and entertaining, and peppered with markers of north and east London.
