My day so far...in haiku

root canal a bust
fissured left molar must go
extraction -- oh shit!

Ibuprofen sucks
greater painkiller needed
love that Vicodin!

[OK, these aren't technically haiku. A real haiku poem contains only one "cutting word." Each of these poems use "cutting words" at the end of both the first and second lines, making them phrase lists instead of haiku poems. So sue me. I'm strung out on Vicodin!]

I hope you're feeling better soon!

I am feeling better, Sunni, and thanks for the kind note. Right now, I'm not using the Vicodin but have been told by the dentist to take 600mg of ibuprofen every four hours for the next couple of days. So far, so good...

Good grief anyway -
Who really knows or cares much
if it's "real" haiku?
