Hi. Coo.


Over the years, I have occasionally tried my hand at writing haiku. When I’ve shared these gems with our dear friend Diane von austinburg, she has responded by pointing out these thoughtful and delicate works of genius so very frequently deal with my reluctance to get out of bed and go to work. “What” we ask “is your point?” Haiku are supposed to express an image of a season and an emotion. It just so happens that I am always willing to stay in bed, season in and season out, and for me, laziness is an emotion. So there.

haiku d’peenee:

Its a cold, hard world

But my bed is soft and warm.

You think thats a choice?

Cat says “wake up, pops”.

Outside, the day lays waiting.

Blankets embrace me.

About mrpeenee

A former bon vivant and terror of a number of New Orleans bars in the mad, gay 1980s, I'm now quietly retired and widowed in San Francisco. I have a crooked nose due to an unfortunate Frisbee accident.
