Back Off in #Haiku Dec. 1-6, 2014


[Please note: My death will probably involve looking down at clouds and overestimating their ability to catch me. Also, these are just translations and do not reflect my own opinions (although the one about Wignall’s Animal Hospital and the one about the person who returned the purse seem nice. And I’m sure the kid who gave the tooth fairy money to charity is a good kid… depending on the charity. Anyway here’s some haiku.]
