sip the gold nectar
yes sit at the pub and sip
watch the drunk floozies

order the hot wings
dip them and the celery
in blue cheese dressing

play the jukebox some
enough to make your music
-al prowess felt well

like Bloke, I will not
vote this year either. I will
go to pub instead.

I wrote this one over the weekend while I was harvesting cherries from my backyard trees:

Fat robins live here
feasting on my cherry trees.

Not having to rhyme
haikus are much easier
to write at bedtime.
Instead of talking to your plants, if you yelled at them would they still grow, but only to be troubled and insecure?
