Portrait of the Artist as a Bottle

The Justin Haiku:

Sometimes I feel really
Bottled up inside;
Sometimes I am a bottle.

COI, Out.

I just wanted to say that I appreciate your idea about what Hiaku is. However, I am very confident that I have created a totally new poetic innovation and am rather proud of my 7-5-7 pattern.

P.S. Everone else: Wip hasn't posted. But I'm pscyhic.

I would have thought a psychic would be a better speller. Thank you for dispelling that myth (not to mention all those words).

If you haven't yet, check out Dylan Thomas's A Portait of the Artist as a Young Dog. I think you'll enjoy it.

... curious to know what happens to an artist in a bottle or an artist who is a bottle when the cork gets popped ...
peace & harmony,

This post could be read as an invitation (I know, I know, I'm stretching here).

So are you inviting us all out for a drink?

Did you really say "you complete me" to someone in this lifetime?

Wouldn't have thought it of someone as ironic as you. Or maybe, heck, I just answered my own question.

what worries me is
not that you are the bottle
but that it's empty
