This was a fairly light week on the haiku front. What’s more, I somehow failed — failed — to post a haiku on November 18. To make amends, I’ll write it right now:
must have been uneventful
(e.g., no haiku).
And you thought you’d have to go without. Please, I’m nothing if not a gracious host.
This installment of haikus covers Monday, November 16 through Sunday, November 22, hitting my insomnia, a business conference, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and my pal’s birthday party. As always, you can find this collection here every Monday, or simply subscribe to my Twitter feed (@CousinBrandon).

and dreaming of prison is
good, I win at life.

Was it Frank Reynolds
or Jesus who first came up
with the Magnum trick?
To the Host of Last Night’s Birthday Party Haiku (November 21, 2009)
Thank you for the beer
and wine, but I’d like to return
To the Host of Last Night’s Birthday Party Haiku 2 (November 21, 2009)
Water bottle? Check.
Tylenol? Check. Cleaning the
puke off my shoes? Mate.
He’s Not in Kansas (Much Longer) Anymore Haiku (November 22, 2009)
Mark Mangino’s weight
is equaled only by the
heft of his ego.
Well, there you have it. Sure, a light week, but haiku nonetheless. Don’t blame me; life’s got a way of fucking up progress.
Until next time, have at it, you vultures!
