December 30th, 2012

He was the first one
to go, then her, in pieces.
Then the boy left too.

December 29th, 2012

Hope is on a shelf
next to fear, more dusty, but
so much more useful.

December 28th, 2012

Almost at the end
of this blog, of my thirties,
of so many things.

December 27th, 2012

Backseat in a car
means you're not watching other
ill-equipped drivers.

December 26th, 2012

There's no believing
in another world beyond,
not where I'm standing.

December 25th, 2012

Christmas reminds me
of the racist thing my mom
said to my sister.

December 24th, 2012

What sadness to read
little drops of poetry,
black ink in a well.

December 23rd, 2012

The hurt in my heart,
larger, than that of my head
and of my body.

December 22nd, 2012

Losing people that
I never had to start with.
Perhaps not the case...

December 21st, 2012

The plane heaved, slipping
from its benign path and death
was all I could see.

December 20th, 2012

Before smart phones, less
intelligent phones roamed the
planet,  just thirsting...

December 19th, 2012

I'm pretty certain
I won't be continuuing
this blog in Thirteen.

December 18th, 2012

I am exhausted
from life, but skilled.  How tired
must most others be?

December 17th, 2012

Planning a trip plus
traveling takes away all
of the "vacation"

December 16th, 2012

Everybody looks
for answers, reasons, but none
exist for this shit.

December 15th, 2012

When I heard the news,
I reacted as a dad
first and teacher last.

December 14th, 2012

No one place to be.
No better circumstance, just
trying to smile.

December 13th, 2012

He ran through the snow,
his smile as bright, as pure
as his heart, as mine.

December 12th, 2012

I try to have hope,
but life has disappointed.
I have no control.

December 11th, 2012

Sleep in the middle,
take the front seat, so many
questions for us three.

December 10th, 2012

If you stripped this blog
of haikus about haikus,
just a few'd remain.

December 9th, 2012

Two days and twenty
two haikus to go. Shouldn't
be too difficult.

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

December 8th, 2012

Don't tell me I can't
write three hundred sixty five
haikus, cause I can.

December 7th, 2012

Some things that I've done
are not worth repeating, but
still I feel compelled.

December 6th, 2012

What would life be like
without music or the sounds
of children's laughter?

December 5th, 2012

A lot of fucking
haikus, that's what this god damn
blog is. Am I right?

December 4th, 2012

I am thankful for
the families of my two
partners.  I'm lucky.

December 3rd, 2012

A horror happened,
in another town, but not
much different than ours.

December 2nd, 2012

Do you think that there's
a haiku competition,
based on speed-writing?

December 1st, 2012

The power went out,
I finished my book, and then
the power came on.

November 30th, 2012

Yay that this month has
only 30 days and not
31.  What joy!

November 29th, 2012

Today when driving
the frost on the windshield blurred
my vision, then BAM.

November 28th, 2012

Sometimes he throws a
book, not at anyone, but
more to announce: Done!

November 27th, 2012

Buddha loves my coat.
At least that's what Blini said.
She could be lying.

November 26th, 2012

She magically weaves
wheat gluten into fibers
of deliciousness.

November 25th, 2012

I'm proud of how she
doesn't seem to need any
chemicals each day.

November 24th, 2012

Must stop soon. No good
can come of these words written
without care or skill...

November 23rd, 2012

Please, hold your applause
there's lots of time to applaud
all my great efforts.

November 22nd, 2012

Like a poetry
slut, I use any old word
if it serves my end.

November 21st, 2012

I will pay you ten
dollars to say words in the
right combo for me.

November 20th, 2012

Less than a month til
I'll be caught up to today.
Then, I'll fall behind.

November 19th, 2012

I can not believe
that Auction Hunters was fake.
I feel so taken!

November 18th, 2012

Clyde wants us to go
ice-skating on his birthday.
What a great idea!

November 17th, 2012

Christmas in the East,
no, not Japan or China.
We're talkin Jersey.

November 16th, 2012

How long have I been
doing this?  It certainly
feels like forever.

November 15th, 2012

Oh yeah, that one guy,
Obama, he won again.
Not that big a deal.

November 14th, 2012

In my rear view I
could see him lose control, crashed
right into the wall.

November 13th, 2012

The primer black car
swerved in front of me, so I
changed lanes and sped by.

November 12th, 2012

The black nail polish
on my two big toes, fading,
reminds of summer.

November 11th, 2012

Prolific, I am.
Specific I'm not.  And that
is worth working on.

November 10th, 2012

All three of us are
on our computers, but we
want to be closer.

November 9th, 2012

They said it couldn't
be done. They said maybe it
could, but still, please don't

November 8th, 2012

And so concludeth,
this definitive style.
We're saner for it.

November 7th, 2012

Alas, the language
we used was high fullooting
and full of aloof.

November 6th, 2012

A mist crept forward
across the cemetary
lilting in my eyes.

November 5th, 2012

The next few haikus
will be from the perspective
of a bad writer.

November 4th, 2012

The problem with these
is the syllables!

November 3rd, 2012

Looking down those steps,
the insane repitition
of the piano.

November 2nd, 2012

It was the acting
as much as the make up as
much as the writing...

November 1st, 2012

The Exorcist was/
is the standard by which all
horror should be judged.

October 31st, 2012

The next several 
haikus I write in honor
of horror movies.

October 30th, 2012

Reluctance to hear
music, at this late hour:
no surprise, really.

October 29th, 2012

Going to New York,
that's how I think of it, not
going to Jersey.

October 28th, 2012

Surrounded by two
beautiful women who go
on the internet.

October 27th, 2012

The Voice finale
was disappointing, but not
quite devastating.

October 26th, 2012

Half of these will be
about how far behind I
am in this process.

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

October 25th, 2012

If I could just get
to December, I won't feel
so far behind here.

October 24th, 2012

and perseverance collide
with a haiku blog.

October 23rd, 2012

On December 12th,
I took a sick day, and then
caught up on haikus.

October 22nd, 2012

Knock knock.  Um, who's there?
Haiku.  Haiku who? What, no
bless you for sneezing?

October 21st, 2012

I'm two months behind
in these damned haikus. Hope my
editors won't mind.

October 20th, 2012

Mothercrackers!  There's
arleady a band
named Education.
