Perhaps One in a Million (Haiku Series Vol. 1)

 

here’s a haiku thread
perhaps one in a million
but i say, “why not?”

 

bring me fortitude
today and all tomorrows
‘cause drugs are finite

 

face is picturesque
but mind’s a humdrum desert
this date is over

 

are your nights lonely?
do you worry ‘bout the cold?
get yourself a cat

 

want some violence?
go to McDonald’s and buy
fries then punch the fries

 

you get a new cat
to replace the dead one but
it’s just not the same

 

steady blue awning
protects me from thunderstorms
but not from sorrow

 

my last piece of food
to whom does it belong now?
the cat or the man?

 

what’s in the flour?
by midnight I crave for bread
along with butter

 

drained by emotions
i retreat into silence
i don’t give a fuck

 

not one of your goals?
ignore, don’t get distracted
time is golden sand

 

immortality
not impossible at all
legacies of work

I decided to make a haiku thread on Twitter. Because why not? It's a nice way of tweeting about random thoughts and feelings while adhering to a few rules and at the same time running amok creatively. Since I do not own the Twitter platform, I thought it best to post them here on my website as well to preserve them forever.
