Notes to this poem…

Christina Grimmie got shot on the weekend, only to be overshadowed by the Orlando gay night club massacre. Someone asked me this morning if I had heard about the shooting in Florida over the weekend. I assumed they meant the gay night club one that was the worse mass shooting in US history by a long shot. However, there was a plausible chance they meant Christina Grimmie’s killing, and I had to ask which shooting? That was pretty pathetic that I had to ask.

The H-series poems comprise of haiku composed while I was not engaged in some activity during which I frequently composed poetry. That is why these are called the Inactive Haiku collection.
