    Midsummer Haiku

    Let's hear 'em.

    Magpie, o' magpie
    Why can't we just get along?
    Your beak, my head. Ouch.

    More of a commuting Haiku, but still. Why?

    with the best haiku
    the mind rises like a bird
    startled into flight

    in stark contrast, these
    best belong on bathroom walls
    enjoy, wipe, forget

    Not making that drive again. Cheaper flights out of Denver, but worth paying the premium to fly local. What a zoo I-25 is.
