Haiku Night School

counting syllables
familiar has three or four
here I argue three

~

the third line departs
from the imagery evoked
but not completely

~

is there Zen in this
master strikes me with his cane
my scribbles burning

~

a pointed dunce cap
the fool will wear it in shame
the wise just wear it

~

the class is dismissed
what all did you learn today
some eraser smears
