Issa’s Last Poem?

Just added to the Poems About Haiku page is Franz Wright’s “Issa’s Last Poem.” It’s a prose poem that’s much like haibun, concluding with a last line, in prose, that might easily be parsed as haiku. I wonder how many more pieces Wright produced that relate, like this piece, to haiku.
