You know what they say about picking a fight with someone who buys ink by the barrel? Well, whenever Basho wanted ink he ground it out of a rock.

I'm just saying.

Haiku is pure joy
a zephyr of simple words
too bad I can't count.

Sometime between starting
highschool
and finishing college
I realized that
inserting random line
breaks does not
automagically turn prose
into poetry.
