Haiku 9/1/07 - Poem by Shannon Thompson

Wolf Parade fan mail:
your fancy claps beat in time
with my hipster heart

Odd Republicans
Pro-life, Pro-war: Contradiction
War's Contraception

A Paper Tiger
seems ferocious but gives me
only paper-cuts

Boys with water guns
girls melt their hearts with one drop
liquid dry humor

you're tattooed for luck
can't have permanent snake-eyes
and never feel a bite.
