“feeling blue”“”


See following text for transcripts of the 8 haiku.

The haiku:

Blue can of steel
What promise do you hold?
Salt flesh so ripe

Little slab of meat!
In a wash of clear jelly;
Now I heat the pan

In the cool morning

A dog barks next door.

Ears, snouts, and innards
A homogeneous mess.
Pass another slice!

The tortured shape of this "food"
A small pink coffin

Slicing your sweet self
salivating in suspense -
Sizzle... Sizzle... Spam!

Pink beefy temptress -
I can no longer remain

Staunch defenders we,
Poetic connoisseurs of the
True deliciousness
