not a poem
Wow, Nicole. It might be the strong black coffee, but I think it's this poem that's set me all a-buzz. Absolutely love it, although I can't put into words why. Relationship between title, poem - and label,actually - fantastic!
Mark, thank you! To me, this is my statement about English Language Haiku and how often and shamelessly we (mis)appropriate cultural and literary symbols from traditional Japanese Haiku. I'm included in that too. LOL I'm delighted that you enjoyed the poem! :-)
...oh, and part of the way I had fun was to have it read two ways: straight through as not being about chrys. and then reading the first & third line together. I have a weird sense of humor, me thinks. LOL
I like the new template, Nic.
Thanks Bandit. I'm kinda diggin' it myself. :-)
Ceci n'est pas une pipe.(I wrote a non-haiku poem recently that ends with the lines "This is not what I meant to write/And it is not poetry." Maybe I'll post it on the blog...)
