in costa rica
there was a construction site
just like the US...

I'll email you later, but I'm going to DC for sure for part of the summer. You know anyone in need or want of a subletter for an odd six week period?

I spy a mallard
courting and wooing his mate.
Soon I will see eggs.

All right, so that's cool, but after that comment you posted on my blog, I wanna know what your haiku to your vibrator would sound like. :)



"humming purring bliss
as you buzz around my clit
batteries be damned" ?

If you won't take the 'risk,' you will miss all the men you pass, not just the 'gross' ones. :)

yeah, but do guys drooling out the car window whistling honestly expect you to stop and be like, 'hey! that was classy! hold up a minute and let me hop in with you!'

that said, after being in a country where you can't walk down the street without a catcall, when you get back here and hear nothing you start to think you're off your game or something.

I'm only a child
All this talk of vibrators
Makes me want to cry

You mean it don't work?
Maybe we'd like catcalls back
My ego needs boost


4/28/2005 6:23 PM  
Blogger cadiz12 said...

one day i'm gonna
turn around and catcall back
just to see the shock

never are the men
good looking by any means
if they were, i'd smile

That’s being a harsh judge.
Note beauty in beholder’s
Eyes… rawr, meow, rawr.

Note to Self: Step One,
Write a haiku for next post.
Comments will be yours!

My post will be haiku
Kool-aid I do remember now
It was hilarious

But I didn't get the joke at first since I've never seen the ad or been in the US.

now haiku is not
stuff of the elusive dream
twenty nine. damn. wow.

jazz you would not
hear the good looking men if
music is too loud

4/29/2005 8:23 AM  
Blogger jazz said...

omar, i sometimes
do not turn on the ipod,
wear it just for show

(i do it when i don't want to be bothered. you'd be amazed how many gross men don't harass you if they think you can't hear them)

if i see another fucking haiku, i'm going to puke.

Scribe, to be fair, most of these really aren’t haikus… 5-7-5 does not a haiku make. Traditionally speaking, they need to be about nature, or at least the seasons, with the first two lines setting up a thought, and the last line bringing a unique insight… but who really cares about that, right?

Blogger scribe called steff said...

yeah, i know, but it's funny--there's a plethora of haiku around. very odd.
