'elect' is 'eject'
'zeal' is 'weak', 'jazz' is 'lazy'
'us' turns to 'versus'

how to manifest refuge
and resolution?

There are times when one
Feels the ebb and flow of life
Not now, not tonight

Hot nights, sweaty sheets.
The pillows' blessed cool side
my only relief.

to the rude fuck on ocean grove beach

father makes wrong call -
"had a good look at my children?"
worthless apology

Ian Row
The world denies me
as I strove to deny it.
Yet nothing changes.

He is an agent of change
We all benefit!

Long weekend haiku

Park-trees, crackers, cheese;
B-minor, BBQ, wine;
Sleep till 11.

when the mind opens -
opportunity expands
with the universe

Stevie Wonder haiku

The following suite uses the lyrics* of Stevie Wonder in both original and altered forms. Stevie Wonder performed at Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne, Australia on 19 October 2008.

my cherie amour:
only one my heart beats for.
how i wish you're mine.

soul = burning fire =
one desire = all that matters
to me.

you might have the cash
but you cannot cash in your face,
don't want ya living here

can't help it, if i
wanted to, wouldn't help it
even if i could.

do i do
what you do, when i do
my love to you?

don't wanna bore you...
oh but i love you, i love you,
i love you.

iMac haiku

gorgeous new iMac
further isolate myself
from society

Ian Row

Work-related haiku: Suite

suck it up, sunshine
seat of progressiveness yields
old school management

five tablespoons resentment
bring to boil

angel in my pocket
don't give up on me

thanks to anna f and peter g
