A distinct mixture:
worry, sadness, entrapment.
"Will you marry me?"

College teaches you
the importance of learning,
but after the fact.

The bar was hoppin'.
Lots of respectable gals.
So we went elsewhere.

You cheated on me?
I'd have expected better
from my own mistress.

You give and you give,
and while I do need money,
please keep your two cents.

My family tree,
few branches but still shady,
and so full of saps.

I pay her with laughs,
and though she accepts, she tires
of minimum wage.

"Y'all talk funny,"
she said of the Iowans
in a Southern drawl.

"Lacks ability."
But my teachers had it wrong:
Lax ability.

I am very smart.
My IQ is 91.
That's an A-minus.

Life is like haiku:
it bulges in the middle.
Too short, too long, too —

Andrew R. Juhl,
you should write him a haiku;
he did so for you.
