• The Vindicator

5, 7, 5.


There was a haiku

in my art history book.

Not five, seven, five.


It made me question,

asking myself, “Am I wrong?”

But of course, I’m not.


My brother and I

Used to talk to each other

In five, seven, five.


For example


“I wonder how he’s

been. Papa from the Papa’s

Freezeria game.”


“I don’t care just give

Me the ketchup to put on

My dino nuggies”


How did my textbook

Get the syllables so wrong

With seven, nine, five.
