Haiku from today’s walk

Today’s walk generated six haiku. Since that’s too many for my monthly recap, here they are. I’m posting from my phone (where I have yet to figure out how to single space), so I’ve employed slashes to indicate line breaks.

Can I just admit / I do not like paprika / either smoked or sweet?

Look down for a change. / Mica chips in the sidewalk / offer sly beauty.

Mia Farrow tires / of Harry-Meghan stories. / She’s a racist now?

Code switching is not / new. Can we stop pretending / that it is? Jesus!

Since New York Lucy / said pacing is a problem / thirty pages — gone!

Every morning: a / red dot, but there is no call. / It’s a ghost. I swear.

    Would you even be able to list 6 thing’s you’re not good at?? You’re so talented it seems in every way.

      What? There is soooo much I’m bad at! Scheduling things, following directions, keeping my mouth shut in certain circumstances, doing the taxes (I don’t), maintaining a positive attitude, fixing computer issues, tracking passwords, being patient. That’s just what comes off the top of my head.

      But thank you.

    I played with punctuation …

    “Since New York,” Lucy said, “pacing is a problem.”
