Shitty Mood Haikus


A knock @ the door / sharp knuckle-rap on the pane / I just ignore it

There were robins in / the lilac bushes just now / making a racket

Spring breezes blow through / whispering tidings of bloom / I close the windows

The puppy lies curled / on a chair by the wood stove / I whistle loudly

Caramel candy / sticks to the roof of my mouth / take it away please

In May the peepers / fill the nearby marsh with song / driving me crazy

The cat saunters by / glancing in my direction / I think he hates me

Watching a movie / about deaf & dumb orphans / I try not to laugh

I’ve reached my limit / of these shitty mood haikus / add one of your own!


About j. j. marino

As a creaky & cranky a-social agoraphobic anchorite, living in seclusion in the Great North Woods & keeping centered by the Power of the Written Word, a blog would seem to be a fat pitch in my strike zone.

  1. One more for good luck / I’m counting the syllables / so you don’t have to

  2. the juniper glistens/i graze it ,yellow tipped/evergreen sperm covers me
