Hamlet In Haiku: Act 3

Act 3

Scene I

Hidden,’s Lord and King.
Paralysis of action.
Nymph: sole innocent.

Scene II

Frighted with false fire:
chorus stokes its poison-flames.
Hot blood and daggers.

Scene III

Thoughtless words in prayer.
Raise thy sword, waver, and lose
the name of action.

Scene IV

Rash and bloody deed!
Rank corruption… Caught between
Queen and father-ghost.
