Records and Tapes (Practice Haiku)

New Jersey traffic
Lexus jackass on bluetooth
what a fucking putz

*

Cultural critique
only provides more impact
with profanity

*

Disconnected from
any apparent sequence
one moment in time

*

Nostalgia disguised
as unwitting repentance
not quite a question

*

Videocassettes
records and tapes and vinyl
can all still be played

*

Distance between things
can be measured by nothing
so much as itself

*

Compare this to that
to this to that to this to
that is everything

*

Factor of zero

it’s two syllables?

*

Typewriter poems
refashion your brain into
something quite different

*

use the word ‘thing’ in haiku
not concrete enough

Concrete is splitting
and nobody walks around
so nothing gets fixed

*

You must be kidding
month is over already?
here comes another
