So I like writing haikus, the ancient Japanese poetry form structured in three lines, with a syllable count of 5-7-5. It's hard to capture a thought in such a small package but that' gives way to tighter editing. I like that, as an editor. Finding the core of the sentiment, or the joke. No fluff.
I tend to write funny haikus, and usually about modern stuff. The old Japanese form requires at least one line about nature but I'm a lot more flexible than that. I like to play with the form in other ways too.
A sample of some of my haikus:
gets depressed, and sends himself
How you confuse my lover!
"I want to...fork you?"
Where is Dave Chappelle?
We really need him right now
Comedy's lost god
And tomorrow, will share with you a three-word haiku I made awhile back!
