On Hiatus

Haiku hiatus
shortens to haiku-atus.
The haiku ate us.

Yes, it's been a while. This blog is on hiatus. I have a lot of offline projects keeping me busy. In the meantime, please enjoy the archive of illustrated haiku and the other fun things on this blog. I'll let you know what I'm up to when my new projects are ready to launch.

Thanks for coming by!

A Sticky Sweet Season

haiku: [Spring is like ice cream. / All cold with colored sprinkles, / till it's a hot mess.]

Spring used to be my favorite season. Lately, not so much. Haiku by me. The image is two photos by Eric that I photoshopped together.


  • A story I wrote was published on McSweeney's last week. You can check it out here.
  • I am sporadically posting overanalytical reviews of things on my Tumblr.
  • I am writing a script for Script Frenzy. My progress is so bad I'll skip linking to my profile.
  • I might have hit a wall with the haiku-ing. The format here may change.

April / So Funny!

Haiku: [Here's an April Fool's: / Give someone something they want / Then take it away!]

This is one of the three types of April Fool's gags that exist. The others are (2) Give someone something they don't want and make them keep it, and (3) Be zany. Variations and combinations of these gags are also performed.

Lingering Warmth

haiku: We were freezing and / the sunset was so great, we / wanted to wear it.

This haiku is a true story from a camping trip on the Appalachian Trail last November. The above image is a photograph of the sunset by Eric. The below is a screenprinted reconstruction of it that we collaborated on.

The screenprint is available on a t-shirt at Ten East Read! Why not check it out?

haiku: He's a dinosaur! / I mean, he is young - on a / geologic scale.

It's my birthday! I made a dinosaur out of pipe cleaners. I found this surprisingly cathartic.

Every Word Counts

What if it's a picture of a novel? [haiku: A picture is worth / one thousand words. Can someone / fix my word count tool?]

It's November, so here is another NaNoWriMo-inspired haiku. It is 14 words long, plus a thousand for the picture... If only I could get Word to do the math right!
