Haikuschmaiku: Coloring Outside the Lines

no publish haiku
say I broke established rules
of Japanese art

so pissing in a
dirty urinal is not

or whores waiting for
the light to change
or waking up
coyote drunk…

well not exactly

the middle finger waving
from behind this screen

can be taken singular
or plural—no rules

    Brilliant, Paul said exactly what I thought while I was reading it — this would be fabulous at a reading, bloody fabulous. I love it, it is so clever, so funny, I have a HUGE smile across my face now……..

    no rules broken, no art spoken, it’s a perfect expression of an idea, something to chant while storming the barricades of the artyfarty literati, haha,

    One of my students asked me once if you could ever write angry haiku. I said no, but I think I’m changing my answer… no rules broken, no art spoken.

  12. Scot says:

    anything is possible? don’t you think?
