Oftentimes I write
Novels, vignettes, sonnets, plays
But I like Haikus

Iambic Pentameter
When I am alone
I think in terms of five and
Seven syllables

Common Man
I try to make poems
About the everyday things
Breakfast, lunch, dinner

I see in life’s facts
(Like Tennessee Williams)
The beautiful things

My daddy’s elbow
It twists, he shouts – let it be
My daddy don’t preach

A Subgroup: Haikus Defending Unpopular Celebrities

Kim Kardashian
Like Shakira, whose deep,
exotic voice makes us dance
low, her hips don’t lie

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi
Snooki’s rather smart
She is just quite fun-loving –
All those Yale girls are.

Lindsay Lohan
I bet you don’t know
That for the past four years she’s
Been method acting

Amy “Tiger Mom” Chua
