Trailer Trash Haiku: Culture for the Less Sensitive Soul

Okay, now don‘t judge the true form of Japanese Haiku poetry by this silly poetry…

Crooked yellow teeth.
Black gaps peek through lips, flirting.
We kiss. It is Spring.

Wintertime coldness.
Cold lard flakes delicately
From yesterday’s plate.

Porch rails lean gently.
A loose nail peeps out.
I’ll fix it next year.

This haiku
Was not quite enough.
I crave abuse...
