Eight Haikus For B.H.

 

DAY ONE, YOU ENTERED
WITH QUIET AUTHORITY,
QUEUED UP THE J.T.

__
LETTERS, SCRIPTS, PITCH NOTES,
MULTIPLE CHOICE QUIZES: YOUR
CRIT’S SO PROTEAN

__
AND HILARIOUS!
SLY, BACKDOOR CHUCKLE: JOY OF
YOUR SMARTS AND YOUR DOUBTS

__
TEABAGGING AGAIN
OH THOSE WORDS SLOSH AND TICKLE
YOU SAY, TEA BAG GING

__
HOW TO REPAY YOU
FOR A _____ OF YOUR FEARLESSNESS
WHIFF? SIP? DASH? FISTFUL?

__
BECAUSE YOU TEACH THAT
WRITING SLASH THINKING RUBS ONE
THE FUCK OUT OUT OUT

__
REMIND US AGAIN
RAISE YOUR BOULEVARDIER
NO PENNY. NO SLOT.

__
TO BRUCE OF L.A.
HEAVYWEIGHT AND HERO WITH
LIPSTICK SCENTED WRISTS
