    (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 'EFFIN ALBERT:
    “Take that thumb out of your mouth.”
    I open my eyes. Jerkface got a look on his face like I’m making him sick.
    I slide my thumb out, dry it with my shirt and stand up.
    “What is this, a goddamn Chinese fire drill? Sit the fuck down, Mike,” he says.
    I go, “No. You ain’t doing this to us.”
    Mom goes, “Michael honey.” Sounding thick already.
    “It’s okay, Mikie,” Albert says and I’m shaking my head ´cause it ain’t okay, not even a little bit okay.

    I fell over, hit my head,
    and forgot the rest.

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

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

    Our prior haiku
    Made you sadly contemplate
    Life's futility.
    It's a simple fact of life that not everyone will be your target audience.

    is only eclipsed by our
    awareness of it.

    So deep is her yearning, she
    cries unsalted tears.

    The cracker carton.
