Bubbles in the Glass

October 23, 2013

Bubbles in the glass
Tickle my nose playfully,
Shaking hands with limes.

This is a quick haiku I wrote in response to Brian Jansen's jocular complaint about his students:

Suggested my students write a poem about how a gin & tonic feels, at a purely tactile level. Students express concern for my well-being, provide list of nearby AA meetings and detox facilities.

You can read a translation of the haiku here.
