Analysis of the Haiku structure

hors du bordel
the gentleman chooses
a fresh boutonniere

Commentaire.

Etrange haïku utilisant le français dans la version anglaise. Il tire sa force de l'opposition L1 versus L3 et du dénouement au dernier mot qui oblige à une réinterprétation du discours. A remarquer le cynisme brutal du discours de surface et la critique au niveau profond. Une construction intéressante.

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

* opposition - Images in opposition.
Images with a group of opposite senses. The images are in opposition to each other. However, the opposite semes are grouped into dialectics. A dialectic is composed of opposite semes, like the two sides, poles of the same grade.

For example:
- Top and Bottom.
- Inside and Outside
- Big and Tiny

* fin - Final element give the clue.
A detail at the end reveals the real meaning of haiku.
