I have the skin of a teenager

Oh enormous zit,
You threaten to eat my face
Like an extra nose

It doesn't make sense if you're tailing someone

Dear Magnum P.I.
You are so conspicuous
in your red sports car

Doctors, nurses and funeral directors

I see dead people.
But not like that stupid kid
from that ghost movie.

Second day

New job, new title,
new salary bracket and
new bureaucracy

Another email spam haiku

Greater organ length
Will provide you ultimate
Fun for lady friend

I'd Google it but I'm sure I'd be disappointed

What's "Cockfighter's Ghost"?
It's written on a carton
in my neighbour's car.

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (Philip K. Dick)

Animals are rare,
Substituted with androids.
What about humans?

I recently purchased One Hundred Great Books in Haiku by David Bader (author of Haiku for Jews). It gave me the idea to haiku-fy some of the books I read*. I usually read at least one (or two or three or ten) each week but I am trying to cut down for the sake of my eyesight and social life. I could read so many more if they were only 17 syllables each.

*If the book is crap, I'll let you know. Otherwise, I recommend the books I turn into haiku!

Finally, the weather is worthy of haiku

Splishy, splashy, splosh.
Raining cats and dogs out there.
So potsu potsu!*

*my friend T taught me this super-kawaii** Japanese phrase to describe rain
