Mike Collins lives in Albany Auckland where he is studying for a BA in English at Massey University.
Mike writes, This year I did a Creative Writing paper and that is where the Haiku originated. These Haiku poems are about images I can remember. The poem "Eh Bomb?" is about the nuclear bomb that hit Hiroshima during WWII. I mostly get the ideas from things I read or experience then re-contextualise them into poetry. The purpose is to create striking images for the reader.
