the haiku marathon (part 8)

16-08-08
what cat was it said
i hate meeces to pieces?
some cartoon feline

17-08-08
the drone of engines
echoes off concrete and steel
aural buffeting

18-08-08
bubbles of foam lift
laughter floats on rushing waves
feet run on wet sand

19-08-08
stuck at home again
with a rattle in my lungs
and a box of pills

20-08-08
antibiotics
give me strange and violent dreams
dinosaurs attack

21-08-08
what am i missing?
she makes it look so easy
who am i kidding?

22-08-08
let the words escape
black bubbles under my skin
man of ink am i

23-08-08
we’re all gonna die
somehow someday maybe soon
let’s drink life in babe

24-08-08
vomiting again
but unable to dodge work
things in me want out

25-08-08
you passed the summer
picking wild raspberries
on the mountainside

26-08-08
a highway to mars
stretches in stardust above
from my sad doorstoop

27-08-08
soup needs no croûtons
like dreams need no sour cream
nightmare bacon bits

28-08-08
i die when i cry
just a little just a tad
in stages i wilt

29-08-08
hey where you goin
with that falcon on your arm
and a cage of mice?

30-08-08
bitter chocolate
and a bottle of strong wine
and a book or three

31-08-08
when no one will stand
when not one soul will speak up
i will draw my sword

01-09-08
the groove will get you
make you dance in your bone sack
dance boogie man dance

02-09-08
the future dissolves
measured out in broken dreams
everybody knows

03-09-08
i require green leaves
blossoms adrift on the breeze
and warm sunshine please

04-09-08
i cannot fathom
the depths to which you will sink
to humiliate

05-09-08
wishing it was not
will not make it something else
truth endures alas

06-09-08
outside in the bog
six cars spin wheels on the grass
think they’ll need a rope

07-09-08
ants invade by stealth
take over the whole kitchen
i must drive them out

08-09-08
pitter patter ping
rain drums the bucket bottom
long silver divers

09-09-08
caught frozen in ice
my shelf shears away from land
and bobs helplessly

10-09-08
countdown to doomsday
let’s take it seriously
i’d rather chuckle

11-09-08
too many piggies
snapping at each other’s tails
circling in the mud

12-09-08
this is what he said
it’s about putting out fires
more like mopping shit

13-09-08
see her tumbling down
like rain. like an avalanche
on your lonely lodge

14-09-08
got to get myself
some of that hot jazz action
hand me my horn, mike

15-09-08
blizzard of sunshine
on inside out silverware
ducks read newspapers
