    For students of haiku you may note that I have used a strong allusion to a haiku by Fay Aoyagi.

    Fay Aoyagi’s work has been a strong influence on me ever since the famous Bill Higginson review/article at Modern Haiku.

    Which haiku did I allude to?

    political election
    my application to be
    a) human

    Alan Summers

    after Fay Aoyagi’s

    cold rain —
    my application
    to become a crab
