Headline Haiku: Like a Chilling Candle

gun s

The cold assassin
late remembers the blood.  Why
does the photo weep?

Words from headlines in the Daily News and amNewYork.  Arrangement by Poem Generator (http://thinkzone.wlonk.com/PoemGen/PoemGen.htm) and me.

Death by gun.

Every day, 88 people die by gun violence in the United States.

    Wonderful drawings of the two men–I will have to attempt Officer Ramos today. The superimposed gun is very dramatic and makes for a great piece. All in all a great post.

    I was probably drawing them at the same time you were drawing Officer Liu. Yes, do Officer Ramos too.

    I found another “poetry generating” website – this one inserts the words you give it into famous haiku forms…it’s also pretty addictive…
