The sixth chapbook in Booklyn's series, Haiku Not Bombs contains a wide variety of poetic forms, ranging from one-line hokku and Filipino hay(na)ku to Japanese renga and loose Western style haikus.The authors of this haiku collection -- a doctor, two filmmakers, an activist, a musician, a playwright, and a poet -- set out to write one poem for every week of the year. Haiku Not Bombs is the result of this collaborative project, a fluid collection of poems touching on themes of modernity, urban life and the everyday.
