Haiku 1232, 1233, 1234, 1235

Here are some haiku that were written back last summer. They’ve been sitting around waiting. I don’t know why it’s taken so long to get them here.

Haiku 1232

midnight at the store
the mannequins drink coffee
try the new lipsticks


Haiku 1233

charming neighborhood
street signs spell out the question
who invited you?


Haiku 1234

inside these stories
built more solidly than life
many took refuge


Haiku 1235

sparkling kitchen sink
a perfect suburban home
step outside and scream

  1. The last one makes me think of The Stepford Wives. Too much perfection can definitely be stifling. I rather like the idea of mannequins and museum models and such-like having their own lives after humans have departed from the spaces – I just don’t want to witness them doing it.

    • I witnessed a lot of housewife perfection angst in my younger days (real and on TV such as in commercials). Ugh. As for secret mannequin lives I would love to visit with some off-duty figures. I bet the conversation would be about the most interesting thing I have ever heard.

    • Thank you. I have loved mannequins since I was young and when my mom was shopping I used to think about what their real lives were like when people were not around.
