their father's hash pipe. Wow, that's quite evocative.

Charles, yes, it is an arresting image.

Welcome, Wrick, hope you enjoy things as you work you're way around.

The short version is "Issa's Untidy Hut" is the blog for the print magazine Lilliput Review, which has been publishing since 1989 and specializes in the short poem.

The blog has evolved, and hopefully will continue to do so. Right now, there are two regular features: this Wednesday Haiku and Issa's Sunday Service, which highlights rock music with literary connections. Every Friday there is a regular post, which usually contains reviews and news of things of interest in the short poem world.
