But sometimes they don't make sense:

What a hoot.  Great short read.  Reminds me of those weird jokes going round in the 80's, like: What's blue and white, sits in a tree, and could kill you?  A refrigerator with a denim jacket on.

hehe great take on haiku

though the abstraction of the haiku is like listening to someone describing a particular sunset - colours shapes tones pace etc

you really dont get it unless you are there

be zen ;)

YES!!! Someone please excommunicate me from the Church of Poetry!  Who's the pope to this most sacred institution?  Walt Whitman?  Sylvia Plath?  Emily Dickinson?  I spit on your poetry, unknown, due to the simple fact that poetry is not held by "standards," and you don't realize this.  

Also, I would just like to go on a tangent on how many poets have committed suicide.  I have already mentioned one, Sylvia Plath, who had to try several times before she could find a suitable killing device.  How you don't die when sticking your head into an oven is beyond me... But anyways, let's all have a fun tribute to poets who killed themselves!  w00t!!!!
