Failed Haiku 35

morning ritual
who catches my dog
with the missing sock


star jasmine
my puppy takes over
his side of the bed


booby’s feet
the impulse to buy
a pair of bright blue shoes


warm cinnamon roll
I forget my name
in each bite


at the party
only remembering the name
with the sweaty hand


we list our ailments
like we're in competition
in the waiting room . . .
the fishes in the aquarium
vying for attention



These one haiku, four senryu, and one tanka have been published in Failed Haiku 35 (Guest Editor, Michael H. Lester
