Strung Out on Life Haiku

Beef stew in the air

Stairwell walls’ sticky with it.

Breathe, run, count 10, breathe.
Color in the lines

She could not stay inside them

Failed kindergarten.
Married on a whim

Each good deed deserves better

Still waiting on gifts.
Two lives turn to one

Children’s bare feet pat down halls

tripping on carpet.
Rumors replace truth

The papers sell story lies

no consequences.
Writing life haiku

Art belies the craft poorly

no skill for an ear.
