  1. I’m sorry. It was Raymond Burr, who wrote a series of Perry Mason-styled haiku, each which had an O. Henry ending.

    I also thought of Raymond Roseliep (1917 – 1983). Some reading this may be interested in the online gallery Montage 23 (August 2009): The Haiku Capital of the Midwest. (Or Gallery ThirtyThree in Montage: The Book).
