Haiku, a la Vonnegut.

FOMA
harmless little lie
makes you a better person
better do it right

E.R.
i love, you love, you
i didn’t realize it was
just toilet paper

MORE OR LESS
human dyslogic
all this happened, more or less
four dimensional

FREE WILL
so it goes, it goes
simultaneously here
inconsequential

SIN WAT
look, there’s love enough
a man’s got to tell himself
he can understand

GOD BLESS YOU, MR. R
Mr. Rosewater,
i’m a painter in my dreams
a sum of money

SLAUGHTERHOUSE
like so many she
tried to construct a life from
things she found in shops

BOKONONISM
round and round we spin
with feet of lead, wings of tin
busy, so busy


On assigning thematic haiku in Creative Writing class today I was challenged to participate. So it goes.

About Amanda

I am repatriating expatriate trying to work it all out. Well, to work some of it out anyhow. I am writing here for sanity, focus and general over-sharing.
