American Haiku

These inspired by Kerouac and the Beat Generation

July 4th
red, white and blue streamers
at the used car lot

at the corner Citgo
gas prices rise
corn husks in the tank

in the ditch
an empty Pepsi can
fills with ants

picnic at the park
a McDonald's wrapper
caught in the breeze

out in the field
an abondoned Chevy truck
home for mice

in this garden
bald goodyear radials
hold tomato plants

young Lions at bat
a fence sitting robin
keeps score

found dumped
old Frigidaire
mouth open

Hi Kathy,

Interesting how many of these haiku have a product or company in them. Of course, I'm one of those who think all good American capitalists should boycott Citgo since they are owned by the Venezuelan government after what their nationalization program did to many American companies-- not to mention the harm this will do long-term to the Venezuelan economy.

Kerouac wrote some decent haiku, but did a good of popularizing the form. Glad to see echoes of him your work.

Jim

All the best Andy
