Haiku Speedbuild #1 – Afar, 3 March ’13

today’s Haiku Speedbuild poems were from Haiku for the Single Girl by Beth Griffenhagen

Huntress Catteno picked:

In my neighborhood
Even the homeless woman
Has a boyfriend. Sigh.

Mia Wallace & Dr. Wiggles collaborated on:

I like trysts with guys
From other countries. It’s like
Stamping your passport!

Corcosman Voom worked with:

I am convinced that
All available men are
Somehow damaged goods.

Today was my first day hosting Haiku Speedbuild and we were fortunate to have Miso Susanowa come out and give us a little “Prim Twisting” demo for the first part of the hour. Thank you Miso! And of course, thank you Peri Afarensis for all your help and support!
