About this work


Heart Haiku is a series of collaborative zines of patient-produced short-form poetry. Following a call for contributions on experiences of heart disease through the format of haiku, Laura Donald asked for haikus on the theme of cardiac devices - pacemaker, ICD, CRT, LVAD, loop recorder, mechanical valve, "anything you've ever thought about having a cardiac device, I want to hear it." The haikus featured in this zine were contributed as comments on information can be found on the zine maker's website.
