Haiku 889
11/16/20

Dial eight and talk loud
Anybody who answers
Shout’em down. And good.

Haiku 890
11/16/20

an insecure life
that has turned itself around –
I found my way home

Haiku 891
11/16/20

gelid poetry
glistening on the white page
the reader shivers

Haiku 892
11/16/20

the liquid verdict
-thumbs down despite all efforts –
of unset jello

  1. Your last poem made me smile because I cannot abide the texture of jello. When I make a trifle, I suspend berries in the jello layer in order to disrupt the texture. I really like #891 and the idea of the crisp white page adding to the icy atmosphere of the poem.

    • I like jello and its slippery smoothness, so nice in my throat, but sometimes it does not jell for me and I never know why. I also really like it with fruit in it too, though.
