2017 #MeToo Haiku Revue

Harvey

    each conquest a brick
    now tied to his flabby neck
    long walk on short pier

Kevin

    as young as they were
    he felt they were old enough
    and we do mean felt

Louie

    the king of standup
    single handedly ruined
    all self pleasuring

Roy

    he read Lolita
    as a self-help dating guide
    Alabama rules

Film Haiku No. 3

Rounders (1998)
Matt Damon, Edward Norton, Gretchen Mol, #spoilers

~

a dodgy friendship
ensnared by his loyalties
missteps and hard knocks

~

an interest in law
interferes with his calling
this hold’em genius

~

Teddy’s cookie tells
that ace could not have helped him
he flops a nut straight

Haiku Night School

counting syllables
familiar has three or four
here I argue three

~

the third line departs
from the imagery evoked
but not completely

~

is there Zen in this
master strikes me with his cane
my scribbles burning

~

a pointed dunce cap
the fool will wear it in shame
the wise just wear it

~

the class is dismissed
what all did you learn today
some eraser smears
