Daily Haiku: November 2005

Wheedle

crucial trade secrets
can’t be wheedled out of me
but I’ll accept cash

Billet-doux

we have not seen Frank
since he sent that billet-doux
to the president

Lassitude

woebegone widow
Ethel’s lassitude belies
her speed addiction

Soporific

he cannot sit through
this soporific movie
devoid of bare breasts

Repast

since you are vegan
I have prepared this repast
of shredded newsprint

Crepuscular

Trans Am headlights pierce
the thick crepuscular mist
questing for tube tops

Maelstrom

The Beatles entered
resulting in a maelstrom
since two are corpses

Subterfuge

milkshake subterfuge
the one surefire way to get
B.A. on a plane

Lambent

now concealed beneath
the lambent waves of the lake
Charles waited for dawn

Rubicund

still rubicund from
Monday’s codpiece incident
Jill stayed home last night

Prestidigitation

the children all loved
his prestidigitation
but his teeth scared them

Kobold

from under my bed
a kobold snarled in contempt
at my taste in shoes

Aplomb

your renowned aplomb
couldn’t fend off syphilis
could it, Mr. Bond?

Puissant

spiked punch, icy stare
with a puissant uppercut
the prom was over

Laudable

your laudable goal
of keeping the dolphins safe
makes my stomach growl

Oneiric

though she was backlit
in a warm oneiric haze
we still opened fire

Nosegay

when presented with
a large, exquisite nosegay
Hercules disrobed

Propitious

petrified mangos
though not propitious for juice
can be thrown at cops

Dapple

her delicate skin
dappled by the disco ball
hides its jaundice well

Mores

the stringent mores
of my son’s little league team
reject Calvinism

Subfusc

the Corvette peeled out
its subfusc interior
held gallons of Tab

Alpenglow

our vacation’s dawn
the alpenglow reminds us
we left the stove on
