Hunter S. Thompson with a capsule of powdered LSD mistakenly spilled on his shirtsleeve comes to mind. I don't think this relates to your verse, though.
Really? Well, have you ever seen "Little Foxes?" Bette Davis's character allows her scheming estranged husband to die of a heart attack by withholding his heart medicine (presumably nitroglycerine, picture above.)When one has a broken heart, the beloved's withholding his love is as devastating as someone witholding medicine from a physical ailment. "Heart on my sleeve" is the cliche.I believe this haiku makes straightforward connections. Of course, Troll didn't get your haiku either. So maybe you and I are simply writers of more complex haiku in keeping with our soulful and sophisticated personas.
I wasn't trying to comment on your haiku, per se. Just indicating what misfired synapses it engaged. The problem is all mine.
Oo, oo! I got it! Good one, girl.
Oooooh, first time I've been over here to visit, and must admit I didn't get the haiku at first. But your explanation with your profile, and I think there's the making of a good Cougar Cop novel, and I'm buying a first run edition. Fun Fun.
Moi, thank you! And, Pam, too!
i remember this movie. bette davis makes a great villain. Good haiku. Happy Haiku Monday!
