Deaf Haiku

Deaf Haiku

ByTom Willard

A collection of thought-provoking haiku (5-7-5 syllable format) on a wide range of issues related to deafness and hearing loss. A few samples -- On cochlear implants: You gotta have a / hole in the head to get a / cochlear implant. On police relations: I hope the police / don't shoot me like they shoot the / other deaf people. On accessibility: Hire the friggin' / interpreter and shut up / about it, okay? On family relations: When aunts and uncles / pass away, we deaf often / are the last to know. Author Tom Willard lost his hearing while growing up and went on to serve as editor of several national deaf-related publications. He lives in Rochester, New York.
