Festival Haiku - 'Festa Major de Gracia', Barcelonia, Spain

Festa Major de Gracia
the devil, angel and me
stand in a line

Festa Major de Gracia
buttons buttons everywhere
never button up our creativity

Festa Major de Gracia - told not
to touch the toilet papers that
make up the bride's dress

Festta Major de Gracia
giant pouty lips set
our tongue wagging
