My Car’s Faster Than Yours: Revolutionary IMprov Sonnet

April 10, 2015

Hands in the air topless dancing on a wide-open freeway -I-15 in UtahSpeed is a function
of an open road.
You’re crawling at the junction
of I’s 5 and 90: Overload!

Your powerful Maserati
is stuck in traffic jams.
His cool Ferrari
moves like overcooked Spam.

While my rag-topped Sebring,
tunes up, top down,
heralds the sunshine of Spring
at 80 mph through town.

And fellow freeway observers cheer at my hands:
dancin’ up in the air, like American Band Stand!

I Hate Freeways: Revolutionary ImproVerse Haiku Lament

September 30, 2013

Though a man of peace,/
I am condemned to live life/
hearing freeway noise.

Growing up in Milwaukee, I could hear the freeway less than a mile away. I vowed never to live so close that I could hear the trucks passing by in the night.
In California, I lived less than a block away from Highway 101.
In Seattle, I lived less than a mile away from I-405.
Now, in Utah, I live within 1/2 mile of I-15.

By Request 4 a QT: A Romantic IMprov Sonnet

April 6, 2010

Her online photos were cute,
her bod was, to boot,
(and though some may not care
I have a thing for blonde hair!)

But her profile caught my eye,
and made me laugh and sigh:
Some of the things she said
spoke to my heart and head.

She likes passion, and romance, too!
Even her name – a QT wanting U –
And I knew, from where I stood,
when we were done, she would.

So I think I’ll invite her to wave at the cops
going topless on I-5 in my rag top!
