the fairies are real
stupid bitch chick can't see them
because she's a guy

A guy? What are you on about?

By the way, these fairies are the famous Cottingley fairies that comprised their own chapter in the story of Victorian spirituality. They were a very big deal at the time. Believe it or not, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was a big supporter of these pix and toured the world telling everyone that they were real.

not on about anything in a haiku, too short for that. it looks like a boy to me, and boys don't usually see fairies, which explains why he's looking somewhere else. not that deep, just a shallow haiku.

sheesh i read your instructions ya know.

a thousand yard stare
all sorts of mischief around
to what to focus

Well, that's where you went wrong AP, following my instructions. Fact is, I'll say any goddamn thing and no one sensible should pay any attention. I certainly don't.

me? sensible? not so much.

Do you remember?
Those long lazy summer days
All you did was dream?

At one point I thought
that magic was all around
Boy, was I stupid.

those mushrooms were good
mum should make them more often
my daydreams are wild

In the emptiness
of innocence and
fullness of knowing
manifestation reveals itself



Somewhere in the universe this must be a haiku.

BTW the chap in the last pic was Ezra Pound. I've been reading about him lately. A truly extraordinary guy.

Ezra Pound mentor of Eustace Mullins.

not a haiku, but, from what little I know, he is interesting.

fairies or faeries
what be they, but fanciful
bits of dream nonsense

innocence destroyed
enter a world become false
after the great war
