i’m home for the thanksgiving week and spent part of this afternoon poking around my folks’ bookshelves, where i found this gem.
it’s a quick read, 100 classics reduced to haiku form. here are a few i especially like:
dante alighieri: the inferno
abandon all hope!
looks like everyone’s down here.
omigod — the pope!
Adam Smith: the wealth of nations
supply meets demand.
the invisible hand claps.
egg-dipped cheese sandwich. thy name
is monte cristo
i thought it would be fun to write some of my own. and then i realized that all i seem to have been reading for a year is david foster wallace. so here is my infinite jest haiku.
david foster wallace: infinite jest
death by amusement.
television is just too
i wanna hear yours.
