(five haiku)

 

grasshopper

gets dibs

on back seat

 

----

 

wine too sweet no tip

 

----

 

seven children play

hide-and-seek behind tombstones

- only six kids leave

 

----

 

regifting scheme

so complex

spreadsheet needed

 

----

 

she's at the altar

not even dating site crush

can keep her single
