Tarot cards and beads
Crosses, stars, holy water

What’s spiritual?
When it’s 98 outside,

I hear a bird singing
the song spirals toward heaven
and falls on my ear.

There is hope in here
In asking and receiving.
Jellies give us hope.

In this silence -

Heed the poet’s words
In heartache can be beauty

School is almost done
I will leave behind this scum
Then I will be glad

Tonight, the Full Moon
Dance, drink, copulate and praise!
Receive Satan’s boon!

Haikus are easy
But sometimes they don’t make sense

I am your Santa
Just keep following the bunch.

This was a surreal haiku my friend’s younger brother texted me late at night while in a half-awake/half-asleep state. He didn’t remember coming up with it at all. Might not be spiritual, but it perplexed me quite a bit. How can someone not remember writing a haiku, especially one that’s semi-coherent? It even has the exact right amount of syllables…

Ooh mountain you are so big
The wind doth blow around the nether regions
I feel compelled to go ride a pig
Pork chops anyone?

dancing wildly
oscillating through the air
dog hair on my shirt

This wart on my hand
Can’t seem to decide whether
It’s me or not me.
