    (The rule of the game is that you have to start your haiku with the last line of the previous one.)

    Been running a while
    like Basho among the hills;
    one step, then millions.

    One-step then. (Millions
    tried the two-step thing but the
    two-step didn't work.)

    From SOULLESS:
    “Albert, you think you saw me do something bad. You saw it in your head that day we went to Chuck E. Cheese, right?”
    “Yessir,” Albert says, so soft I barely hear him.
    “No, you didn’t, Albert. You didn’t see a fucking thing. Do I make myself clear?”
    Albert whispers Yessir.
    Jerkface says, “Good. That’s real good, Albert. No more vision shit or episode shit or whatever the fuck that shit is. You’re both going to keep your traps shut about me from now on if you know what’s good for you. You dig me, pygmies?”
    Me and Albert both say Yessir at the same time.
    Jerkface stops talking. Just sits there looking at us. I’m watching his fingers tap on that knee and I start counting: onetwothreefouronetwothreefour—

    Two-step didn't work.
    I fell over, hit my head,
    and forgot the rest.

    as the sky melted

    As the sky melted,
    I tossed your ashes into
    the Caspian Sea.

    warns us of the cliffs.

    Lean back and stay safe;
    if you fall forward, the fire
    will claim your eyebrows.

    Brows, beards, and 'stashes.
    grey steadily through the years,
    'til we dye or die.

    'til we die, or dye
    our own shrouds with bitter tears,
    we must fight onward.
