Daily Haiku: May 2005

Recreant

you recreant dog
for eating the last waffle
I shall have your head

Dissemble

it’s quite a hairpiece
successfully dissembling
lobotomy scars

Lionize

to be lionized
for a well-manicured lawn
the suburban dream

Saturnine

capes, tights, scowling masks
evil fears the banner of
the Saturnine Squad

Artifice

camouflage is cool
but the snake’s real artifice
is Three Card Monty

Suffuse

the dominatrix
suddenly suffused in guilt
removed the ball gag

Pallor

my Irish pallor
a flag of triumph that taunts
the enemy sun

Presage

the shape of that cloud
a presage from God:
“Your girl? She’s a guy.”

Menagerie

behold the daycare
a vast menagerie of
future nobodies

Untoward

consoling father
by resurrecting mother
seemed a bit untoward

Ablution

a basin aboil
sodium-soaked pumice pores
a blithe ablution

Camarilla

his camarilla
suggested he get rid of
his Krokus t-shirt

Triskaidekaphobia

for the old-guard Jews
triskaidekaphobia
runs rampant in boys

Concomitant

hey, it’s Hot Dog Man!
where is his concomitant
Baked Bean Boy Wonder?

Ameliorate

the coach is pleased with
my ameliorated
tobacco habit

Wayworn

don’t look so wayworn
it’s only five blocks to the
methadone clinic

Aver

the undead emerge
the spring in their step avers
that summer is here

Frisson

Coors-sponsored frisson
meets Dow Chemical-sponsored
fortification

Claque

in the Great Conflict
my trembling enemies were
engulfed by my claque

Traduce

I won’t be traduced
by your indictment of my
NAMBLA membership

Labile

the lability
of our cashier Bruce Banner
scares off customers

Supplicate

I dropped the joystick
unwilling to supplicate
for Tron permissions
