Lonely Hearts Haiku

I’m a bit of a
loner, & although I like
being alone, I

am looking for a
best friend who makes my pupils
dilate & blood rush,

who’s independent,
someone to complement my
life, not enhance it.

I love reading &
writing & chess & cooking
while listening to

music—hip hop or
hardcore or ambient or
rhythm & blues—but

most of all I love
my cat, who’s named after a
j.d. salinger

character. forgive
this gimmicky bio, please,
these seven haiku.
