    Obliquely ref'renced,
    the snark, the joy, the sadness--
    I'd fly nowhere else.

    Why isn't the poll
    A haiku too? And it was
    Not started by Vince?

    Some haiku express
    Depths of insight and beauty
    But this one does not.

    This all makes me happy in my heart. I do like cheese, btw. Especially brie.

    I am worried about Orlando's lack of support on the poll, however.

    Wait, that's the first two lines of a haiku:

    Maryn is looking
    Like a hot Dali balloon
    It can't be denied.

    Maryn, poet after all
    "I've never had to fake sarcasm."

    AND hot deli balloon--No wait! That's Dalí.
    Maryn:

    Un globo de pez
    Una corazon de paz
    Incapaz, no más.

    translation:

    A balloon full of fish
    A heart full of peace
    incapable of poetry no longer --
    (This one is smoother in Spanish but then Dali was a Spaniard!)

    I wandered away
    but came back to find this.
    Fish, cheese, it's enough.

    I love poetry about cheese! What could be better? It would be a tall order.
