These hiakus are dedicated to the Minneapolis skyway system.

I.

Out of the woodwork 

Pregnant women everywhere

Sea of baby bumps

II.

Hey with the cat call

No, I won’t be your girlfriend

Kindly f-off bro

III.

Oh, The Burger Place

My arteries say, “Don’t go!”

But my feet say, “YES.”

IV.

A skyway storefront

Banana Republic, why

Must you tempt me so?

V.

Enter if you dare

I judge your restaurant choice

Do you judge mine too?

VI.

Oh my God. Monday.

Caribou, my only love

Give me caffeine now

VII.

Lazy slow walker

I want to run you over

But that’s not kosher

VIII.

Bad fashion choices

Do you know “What Not to Wear”?

Take a look, sweetie

IX.

Hey skyway singer

That lipstick lesbian song

Is kind of strange, man

X.

Where the hell am I

These skyway maps are hopeless

What building is this

con amor,

shan

    • Laura, such sweet praise/For just a few, humble words/Love you, slubby babe

      Everyone should try this haiku thing. It’s rocking my world today. I think you would be EXCEPTIONALLY good at it.
