Here are some brand new haikus written by Texas Outlaw Poet, Jeff Callaway, for his newly released Henderson County Blues, now available on Amazon!

TEXAS HAIKUS by Jeff Callaway

1.

A beer bottles break

Reverberates memories

Down Tin Can Alley

2.

Inside Tyler’s thighs

Lies the rose that hides inside

The deep Pine Curtain

3.

Blackbird to Athens

With B.P. and Smokey and

Mickey’s green grenades

4.

My nostalgic dream

Like celluloid memories

Gleam the old days gone

5.

Lost in the magic

Of such an ocean as this

Sleepy dark daytrip

6.

The Texas Plate at

Ochoa’s melting in my

Mouth-watering yum

7.

The sound of breaking

Glass down the hallway nightmares

In time hidden deep

8.

Rose thighs, scarlet hair

Eyes stunning, lips fair, do I

Have a prayer? No

9.

Sounds of the past

Lie silent now, No open loud

Hurtful sounds of old

10.

Endless waves rapping

Time lapse dances tidal on

Texas proud beaches

11.

Ethereal highs

Atop Guadalupe Peak

Overlooking all

12.

Hard work, clean livin

Not dancing on the ceiling

Of Speeder Freak Lake

13.

Perusing the beers

Best selections appear at

The Come & Take It

14.

Old skipping vinyl

Spinning On The Road Again

On The Road Again

15.

Texas women are

Best but now All My Ex’s

Live In Texas too!

16.

Texas is beatest

My Henderson County Blues

Sweetest best served stoned

17.

Primitive urges

Swollen natural surging

Horny haunts of old

18.

Long gone tweaked out

Nights in Gun Barrel City

Glad those are over

19.

A lone mockingbird

Perched atop Big Rock

All mocking Eustace

20.

Texas Haikus and

Henderson County Blues seem

To go hand in hand!
