Haiku based on 'You' and 'Answer'


Some odd shift occurred
The click of a closing door
You are not yourself

Not my fantasy
Some mix of expectations
You are simply, you

You are in my head
I hear you laugh at a joke
Your father told you

OK, I love you
OK, can't live without you
You're my night and day


Answering the phone
They wanted my date of birth
Of course I just lied

One, then another
Answers pop into my mind
Solution focussed

If twenty monkeys
Spent twenty years typing words
Could they write haiku?

(answers to this latter question in iambic pentameter, please)
