Escape - March 20, 2018

A student stood at the curb
Waiting for his ride to arrive.

I hurried my way back home.

Our paths would collide.

Discomfort arose
From this momentary presence.

We hid in our phones
To escape ourselves
And everything else unpleasant.

Haiku #15 - February 5, 2018

No cause for concern!
If you raise one concern now,
It breeds too much more.

Blue Pill (Flouride) - March 10, 2017

This morn' I lay ruminating in bed
O'er the Equifax breach, my crip'ling debt,
A litterbox full, a garbage truck to race,
The gas price rising, solar flares in space,

My withering faith (or my doubt in fate),
Carpal tunnel, if I'll graduate,
Nuclear weapons, our surveillance state,
And my odds of ever finding a date.
