Daily Haiku: January 2007

Supine

please bear this in mind
while petting my supine cat:
he’s not for eating

Censure

our faces were red
when the stern censure came down
from the Navajos

Yeasty

his fond memories
of that untamed, yeasty minx
eclipsed the herpes

Cudgel

armed with intellect
I’ll cudgel you with knowledge
or this table leg

Foofaraw

I bought you a yacht
so what’s all this foofaraw
about back taxes?

Imprecation

imprecated by
a sullen Pat Robertson
Tina was unphased

Eddy

his best dreams found him
swallowed up by the eddies
in a grand spittoon

Sunder

in its final month
Dinah’s book club was sundered
by Ayn Rand herself

Interregnum

the interregnum
between their hall monitors
was uneventful

Punctilio

oblivious to
Wimbledon’s punctilios
Steve wore body paint

Favonian

as we lie longing
for a favonian breeze
the seagulls take aim

Exegesis

his exegesis
of Puff the Magic Dragon
earned him detention

Nascent

some opponents of
my nascent “daycare service”
didn’t like my van
