The traditional Japanese Haiku is not exactly known for having LGBT themes.

But a new book coming out next year will attempt to fill the gap on the bookshelves of anyone who wants to read short, beautiful poems about lesbian dating, sex…and cats.



Billed as a “humorous guide to lesbian sex, dating rituals, and relationships,” the book will utilise illustrations of cats in “various stages of sexual awkwardness,” to guide people through the world of lesbian relationships.

Anna Pulley, the book’s author and self titled ‘haiku revivalist’, has published several examples of her work on The Toast. Here are a few examples of what you can expect when the book emerges in April next year.

Drink excessively
the whole night. When she’s nearby,
talk a lot louder.

Meet crush. Think she’ll make
the first move. She thinks you will.
Both die celibate.

Visit a witch store.
Not for spells, just to support
local queer business!

If you cannot wait until the book is released in April, follow Anna Pulley on Twitter here for more lesbian/cat based poetry.

Last month a children’s book about a transgender teddy was released and took the world by storm.
