yet to come?

Spark of cells dividing
Robs her waist, fills her life
makes me feel empty inside

"Western Haiku's"

5-7-5? No way! In case anyone is counting, let me introduce you to my form or lack thereof. Jack Kerouac and Michael McClure and the SanFrancisco Poetry renaissance started the concept of "Western Haiku." (I tend use them as they are easier to write and are still a fun way to get the point across.)
The basic 5-7-5 syllabic requirements are chucked but I try to stick with the thematic guidelines of the Japaneese haiku as mastered by Basho, Buson, and Issa, namely:
1) Seasonal references (kigo) to establish time and place
2)The moment seized and rendered purely, captured in an instant of Buddhist (or Zen) enlightenment
3)Reflections of particular consciousness, or point of view of the author, his or her lonliness, comedy or anger.

If interested check out (my inspiration) the book: the haiku year. Written by Tom Gilroy, Grant Lee Phillips, Michael Stipe, Anna Grace, Jim mcKay, Douglas A Martin, and Rick Roth.

dinner boobies

The fake nipples we drew
on Neil's shirt expanded
at the cleaners, horribly!
