day forty six – the haikulevala

Liz suggested at one point that I attempt to do a series of haiku that told a connected story – a haiku epic, if you will.  This was my first try.


I woke with a start
and was shocked to see aliens
were punching my mom

“the fuck you doin??”
“she owes us money, human”
that was a space lie

I had just seen Signs
so I threw water on them
M. Night’s full of shit

they only got wet
and incredibly angry
then I called X-Files

the show was cancelled
but they showed up anyway
pretty nice of them

Mulder and Scully
saved my mom and stayed for drinks
best New Year’s ever
