Haiku/Gesundheit (Volume XLV)

but i can't sit up straight

wool skirt lined with silk
slips and slides against nylons
i slouch painfully


in regards to e-mails my brother sent with photos from afghanistan

part i
my server says i'm
approaching storage limits
why can't i delete?

part ii
seriously folks
he's been back more than a year
and they're saved elsewhere
this was my dinner last night

lean pockets are gross
(she says without prejudice)
more cereal please
i shouldn't have taken that last no-doz

my heart is ready
for the indy 500
which i could run now

I know the taste of lean pockets all too well..

My thoughts are with you at this time.

LOVE the haikus. The first time I read the last line of the last one I saw "which" instead of "wish" which was even better.

Interesting, Woodrow. I think I agree -- I may even change the haiku accordingly.

Thanks!
