Haiku Kachoo

Sometimes on Facebook
I perform feats of haiku
Now I post them here

Oh…hello, spider
Wait there while I arm myself
Hey, where did you go?

Pack of ten hot dogs
Yet buns come in bags of eight
What madness is this?

Fresh from the dryer
Sort and fold the fragrant warmth
Where’s my other sock?

Ah, peanut butter
Smooth spread of roasted delight
I eat the power

Have a haiku you’d like to share?  How do you dispose of the two extra hot dogs?  And how many socks have you lost to the devouring void?

The Breakfast Taco Not Meant to Be

Cereal-Fruity-Pebbles

On a morning bright with promise,
I attempted a reinterpretation
Of the breakfast taco.

But, alas,
When I held aloft my intended feast,
The Fruity Pebbles escaped
In a flurry of rainbow snow,
Leaving my tortilla as empty as my dream
Of the breakfast taco not meant to be.
