Haikus For You May 4, 2015

   
   

Just a couple (or 3) little haikus that bubbled up out of me today. I guess the bubbling was a little off since haikus are supposed to have a 5-7-5 syllable setup, and I kept thinking it’s supposed to be a 7-5-7 setup. Oh well. Let’s call ‘em … Inverse Haikus. Hmmm, according to Google, I’m not the first to come up with that.

   
   

Inverse # 1

Opening wide the windows

Kettle set to boil

Outside noise disturbs my peace

   
   
   
   

Inverse # 2

End of the day here at last

Moon shines down so bright

Tomorrow sweeps in too fast

   
   
   
   

Inverse # 3

Neighbors screeching, car horns blat!

Waking sounds of day

Ugh, take me back to dreamland

“my name is BABY and you lean out of your car and spit at my feet it lands in a puddle in front of me and i am thirteen and in a suburban neighborhood on the way home from school and i gag and run with my backpack banging like the echo of your words against my back like you are chasing me all the way home …”
