    Let's procrastinate?
    I swore I'd write a novel,
    but instead: haiku!

    spaces inbetween,
    concealing my thoughts of you;
    my love unspoken

    my love unspoken.
    kiss my mouth, imagining
    sweet lips on mine. once.

    From CHERRY:
    “I’m really lucky. Know why?”
    “No. Why?” I inhaled deeply.
    “Because tonight I get free Coke,” he cracked open his can for effect, “and last night, I got free steak.”
    I exhaled. “From who? Whom?”
    Steve guzzled down his Coke. “Ahhh, that’s good stuff. Nathan. He took me out to eat.”
    “He did?” I handed Steve the joint and watched him take another drag. He parted his lips but no smoke came out.
    I waited.
    Finally, he released the smoke. “Why do you keep looking at me like that?”
    “I like looking at you,” I said.

    Sweet lips on mine, once,
    Remember'd honey; now I
    taste only dry dust.

    Dream something juicy--
    hot and sensual, smooth, raw--
    dance your heart to sleep.

    Don't ever dream about him.
    Neither, possible.

    Neither possible:
    that you should win back my heart,
    or be cleansed away.

    Or swept away in silence.
    Neither pleases me.

    Beans with the hobos
    or caviar with the kings--
    a lunch is a lunch.

    A lunch is a lunch,
    but if plotting coups by soup,
    order dessert first.

    Stepping stones, anew
    with emerald moss, have too
    forgotten the flood.

    Forgotten, the flood
    seeped past the guards at the wall
    as they counted stars.

    Though left unspoken,
    our words hang in heavy air.
    Thunderstorms, regret.

    From every instance,
    blind. Or set to blind. To see
    Or not to see, Yorick.

    ETA: Sorry about that. eek.

    quick correct on syllable count:

    Not to see Yorick,
    but when I turn broken soil,
    I get the giggles.

    Quiet whisperings;
    the pines anticipate spring,
    but hold winter fast.

    But hold winter fast:
    Quiet, waiting, building strength
    For spring's explosion
