8 HAIKUS FOR DANE COOK*

The lights are blinding
Sweaty heat and gasps of shock
But not the good kind

Stiff spiky helmet
Will not protect you from wind
Blown in by disdain

Once vibrant, now tired
An aging Pagliacci
Sex is not laughter

Shuddering contempt
Hipsters refusing to laugh
Sufi now falls limp

O fame! It is cruel
When you earn it through deceit
One’s pride pays the price

Stadiums go dark
College students graduate
C.K. grows stronger

You are receding
The blister of rejection
Such disfigurement

There are still groupies
Who’ll fuck you on the way down
I say good riddance

*sorry for two bros in a row
