My Life is Absurd

I have a shit ton of poetry in my sketchbooks from my adventures abroad that I forgot about(not to mention travel sketches)

Holy shit guys I need to get my shit together and do some really cool illustrations and put it all in a book and try to make some goddamn money

American Haikus in Italy

#1

Cross-eyed Lady

You have to check your bags in

frost bite eats us all

#2

Affectionate kiss

Virtues and vices surround

kiss of betrayal

#3 

Return to classical

In the middle of a farm

Don’t sit on the chairs

#4

Setting in the west

Eastern influences rise

cemetery fishes

#5

The audience looks

silent streets with no actors

Rinascimento

#6

The blood of Jesus

The sky is barrel vaulted

elegance bleeds forth

#7

Mantua Las Vegas

Giants crushed; Gods rage party

fish swarm for thrown bread

#8

The fair Verona

with a tomb for a lady

letters for the dead

#9

Ugly devil with

angelic talent playing

songs he don’t repeat

#10

Peasants do not dream

of wood seats and wondrous shows

domain of the prince

#11

Parma, a city

is much too cheesy for me

Parmasian cheesy

#12

The trashcans are on fire again

the workers united

will never be divided

#13

Snow falls in the lonely station

heart beats and sonic boom boots

break the silence

#14

Vespas stalk the streets

Buses gallop and roar past

Taxis leave no survivors

#15

Ciao Bella!

Come va?

Andiamo al bar?

#16

No peanut butter

No ziploc bags

No cheddar cheese

#17

Walking along the Arno

Still waters

Besides a tempest mind

#18

There are no toes

On the pigeon’s foot

I trip on the cobblestone

#19

Everyday

my love of pizza

grows
