Haiku Contest 2000

The dust has settled.
Team BG is bleary-eyed.
We have a winner.

More than sixteen hundred entries flooded the Breakup Girl mailbox for this year’s competition, and there was much debate at BG Haiku HQ. After executing an elaborate judging ritual modeled on the ancient Japanese poetry slams, Team BG was able to classify our entrants in this year’s contest. Heartfelt thanks to all who entered. Now, with great respect, we present you our...

Take some small issues,
bake for two months at high heat.
Relationship’s done!

I can’t stop thinking
about you, and how you are
blocking the TV.
    -- Joel Wheeler

Joel, our Master’s Apprentice, has earned history’s reverence... and also a cool portable CD player from Sony, plus three CDs hand-picked by Team BG.

So, I’m sensitive.
That doesn’t mean I can’t say
you look dumb with bangs.

What made the voices
in your head think the voices
in mine would say "yes"?

If love means never
having to say you’re sorry,
he must love me, right?

You were my sunshine.
Or, rather, you were more like
harmful UV rays.
    -- Kristi Wheeler

Like a cheap hot dog,
you’re part chicken, and part rat.
Not in MY ballpark....
    -- Karen Kanter

Breakup dinner date.
"Let’s do Jamaican," I say,
and mumble, "You jerk."

Sitting on the fence.
Is it lonely for you there?
You must like wedgies.
    -- Kit Cooley

"Wine, women, and song"
beat out "a loaf of bread, a
jug of wine and me."
    -- P. Barwig

Devoid of life skills,
loser ex is back with Mom.
Next time, date orphan.
    -- Lisa Manescu

Our dedicated Haiku Practitioners have earned great honor. (Sadly, that was all that was left in our budget.)

You have morning breath
and a weed-wacker hairstyle.
I still snuggle you.

24-7 until
he 86’ed her.

But does love turn on and off?
Girl here, not light switch.

Cheese whiz o’ my heart,
sweet, studly curd of my soul,
pasteurize flows love.

Being held was nice.

barking. Remind me, what’s great
about puppy love?

he thought "ellipse" had something
to do with the... sun.
    -- Karen Kanter

My heart’s for giving
again this year. To a saint,
not a massacre.

answer her collectable
S.I. football phone.
