Top definition
a type of short form zen poetry that's the same as haiku (ie., 5-7-5 syl per line) but which has reference to altered states of consciousness.
When the doors of perception are thrown wide or torn off their fasteners; short verse constructs such as highku can capture moments, realizations and altered glimpses of other states of consciousness.

Strangles with his tentacles,
And shows no mercy.

Rid yourself of all your ills.
Then laugh your ass off.

I love the U.S.,
it’s as perfect as I, though
not nearly so high.
