beautiful. and i hate being called crazy! :)
I've become accustomed to being called crazy, but this would be a fun "back atcha"!! Love it!
Love it, Kelli. Besides, being called crazy probably means you're having fun. That's a good thing.
wow.. unique thought,.wonderfully written..!! :)
Wow! The opening haiku-stanza is nothing short of brilliant, and what an image to leave us with in the end.
I get called crazy all the time, it just doesn't even register in my mind anymore. Beautifully vivid piece!
Fantastic wording....and we can all recognize a part of ourselves here
I enjoy the multiple interpretations of your images, each of which reminds me of how we come of age in this world: Crazy for daring to be without the mask? Crazy for stopping to redefine the self? Crazy until your eyes were dangerous enough to kill?
Thought provoking and lovely haiku ~
Damn, I like this. It's like some wild hallucination. And always, the edge you do so well.
Definitely has a trip to the dark side, the underside. I love mask poems, and this is an excellent one.
Oh this is good. that opening haiku is one of those wow verses that come around now and then. Just love it. Your work with haiku continues to amaze me, always great work MZ. Thanks
Wow! VERY edgy, with the most wonderfully unexpected imagery. You packed so much into six short lines. Fantastic.
A little eerie, but definitely thought-provoking!
Nightshade teeth....I could eat this stuff for dinner every night. You certainly can turn a couple phrases int a three act play. Scrumdillyishus.
Love the image planted! Great poem!!
Yes, Just do it for ourselves, MZ! It would not and should not bother any one else. Great Write!Hank
fascinatingly pregnant with possibilities, this poem.a bit eerie, yes...but superbly crafted.
nice...i like the descriptors you chose in the end there...tjis def has an edge to it...
Crazy like a fox...I am in LOVE! This totally rocks.
Beautiful sweet with a vicious bite. Sometimes we have to recreate ourselves. Great write.
Lovely poem. I especially like the visual of "honeysuckle eyes."
Flowering is all about finding finding some special identity within a species! This is wonderfully wild and spikey!
So beautiful--love the poisoned teeth and sweet, sweet eyes. I will remember this one!
When I read smart, sharp pieces like this I wonder what came first? Was it the message of intent? Was it the form? The words of choice?When I read smart, sharp pieces like this I am glad I have done so.
Does that really work?! Imma totally try that. But I'd better have honeysuckle eyes, girlie.
Oh, what blooming!Mask to Hide Your Fear
what do honeysuckle eyes look like?ugly man mask
Didn't even realize this was a haiku until I read the comments. Well done!
Dark, deranged and fantastic.
Fantastic and an awesome storyline style of Haiku :)
Striking, wow-worthy work. One of the best poems I've read in a loooong while.
