HiKues (haiku)
A new HiKue is
  unveiled each weekday at 
Doing art we share
  and are fulfilled, loving both
neighbors and ourselves.  4/10/00

One of the best things
  about painting full-time— it’s
easy to stay thin.  4/13/00

An artist’s status—
  somewhere between god and bum,
nearer the latter.  4/14/00

Selling poetry
  beats therapy— you pay me
not vice versa.  4/17/00

If artists are so
  great, why have they paucity
of money or love.  4/19/00

If everyone says
  they like your art, it could be
a cause for concern.  4/24/00

What’s the difference
  between a crackpot and a
genius? Credentials.  4/29/00

Getting old. Only
  way I could fill a cradle
would be to rob one.  5/6/00

Art is measured in
  content, style is after all
a mere cosmetic.  5/12/00

It’s Spring. If only
  the bank balance would grow half
as fast as the grass.  5/16/00

Years ago you could
  reserve a trip to the moon.
Now just the dead go.  5/17/00

What do women want?
  At losethatloser.com,
a sugar daddy!  5/22/00

Ninety-nine ninety-
  nine-percent-firm commitments,
ninety-nine no-shows.  5/23/00

If reality
  becomes objectionable,
just create your own.  5/24/00

On the internet
  no one knows every basic,
we’re all beginners.  5/25/00

Liqueurs are not a
  cost-effective buzz— unless
you’re out of whiskey.  5/30/00

The fridge is always
  too full yet there’s still never
anything to eat.  5/31/00

Blind dates are called that
  because they’re the one time you
sometimes wish you were.  6/1/00

What canine-lovers
  and gigolos must both know—
how to pet a dog.  6/2/00

If the warranty
  will end before the payments,
think before you buy.  6/5/00

How to paint full-time—
  don’t try to earn what you need,
live on what you earn.  6/6/00

I’m dotcom, so folks
  think I’ve a portfolio.
I do— pawn tickets.  6/7/00

I don’t have a fat
  wallet but my ego more
than makes up for it.  6/8/00

The next-worse thing to
  the toilet overflowing
is the dishwasher.  6/9/00

If you’re healthy and
  doing your bliss, forgive the
world anything.  6/12/00

Borrowing defers
  income taxes— trouble is
you owe two uncles.  6/13/00

A sure way to swear
  off popcorn— use the popcorn
bowl to soak your feet.  6/14/00

Have neither toolbox
  nor riches— if a woman
likes me she likes me.  6/15/00

One gal says I want
  a woman who’d worship me.
That would be a start.  6/16/00

One addiction that
  I’ve never been accused of—
workaholism.  6/19/00

To win at craps just
  play the line, take full odds, and
of course get lucky.  6/20/00

I’m constantly asked,
  “What about oil paint fumes?”
They save on whiskey.  6/21/00

Working in movies
  is more real than much of life,
including dating.  6/22/00

Successful children
  are greater masterpieces
than the best paintings.  6/23/00

Learn how to live broke
  and no make-or-break critic
will ever scare you.  6/26/00

The highest reason
  is knowing when it’s okay
to suspend reason.  6/27/00

Be famous enough
  to be wanted, scarce enough
to be undisturbed.  6/28/00

Everyone’s income
  is always a little shy
of comfortable.  6/29/00

Debtor’s recompense—
  being loved for who you are,
not for what you have.  6/30/00

My house’s leanings
  do not dismay me, flaunting
its timeless handcraft.  7/3/00

  of other peoples, besides
tolerance, builds peace.  7/4/00

Artists must piddle.
  Once you start cranking, it’s not
art, it’s industry.  7/5/00

To get an outdoor
  kitchen, just tear the roof off
of your indoor one.  7/6/00

Always-alone’s too
  hard, every artist should have
one or more lovers.  7/7/00

Rather do something
  enjoyed with three women than
something not with four.  7/10/00

Good thing success brings
  wealth— having many lovers
can get expensive.  7/11/00

One war few single
  guys mind being drafted for—
fighting off women.  7/12/00

Too many lovers
  too little time, the perfect
vanity license.  7/13/00

No guy really wants
  to be loved by all women— 
that’s three billion strong.  7/14/00

It would be my luck,
  if I were a woman, to
find no guy like me.  7/17/00

Who knows whether you’ll
  find the lover of your dreams
or of your nightmares.  7/18/00

Great if you never
  grow up— better too long than
too short a childhood.  7/19/00

Lesser looks may not
  be that bad, oft inspiring
compensating wit.  7/20/00

Give a big dreamer
  the internet, and all you
need is an iceberg.  7/21/00

The net’s a billion-
  page library. Show me one
rich librarian.  7/24/00

Those affiliate
  programs— here’s this guy in church
praying for click-throughs.  7/25/00

You aren’t really broke
  till you’re out of both money
and toilet paper.  7/26/00

Seems that as soon as
  shoes get comfortable they
start falling apart.  7/27/00

Fuller your closet
  gets, the harder it is to
find something to wear.  7/28/00

One word best describes
  passion for writing haiku—
claustrophilia.  7/31/00

Why is it that when
  the toilet overflows it’s
always number two.  8/1/00

From my publisher
  I seldom fear rejection,
because I am him.  8/2/00

My first chapbook is
  out of print and hard to find—
the way I like it.  8/3/00

The money is gone,
  so until I can rustle
some up, so am I.  8/4/00

It’s better to be
  poor and feel rich than the
other way around.  10/3/00

Like the camel’s back,
  that last straw of junk mail
will someday break mine.  10/18/00

Not every guy can
  be gay, some of us have to
put up with women.  12/11/00

Debt is like being
  in jail, except you have to
cook your own meals.  1/7/01

If the devil had
  made the women in this town
they’d be no different.  1/18/01

Misogyny— yuck!
  I’m going to like women,
much as I hate them.  1/18/01

I may have met her
  but probably not, somewhere
walks my love-to-be.  1/22/01

The web is perfect
  for artists— they’re already
used to being poor.  1/25/01

If a woman speaks
  ill of men, it just means that
she hasn’t met me.  2/9/01

Must get my fifteen
  minutes of fame and fall in
love during that time.  2/15/01

Why’s it taken me
  so long to succeed? There’s no
woman behind me!  2/16/01

Solid myth-building
  can’t make average art good, but
can make good art great.  2/19/01

I love the net— it’s
  the wild West, only without
dust or six-shooters.  2/20/01

There’s a girl I like,
  but her boyfriend’s initials
aren’t the same as mine.  2/21/01

Only way someone
  could have just one orgasm—
it causes his death.  2/22/01

There’s one thing you must
  have in order to get out
of debt— an income.  2/23/01

Some moms are so young
  I could almost cradle-rob
myself a granny.  2/26/01

How do lesbians
  manage to date? There’s no one
to pick up the check.  2/27/01

Outwit chain-wishes
  by wishing to receive more,
then not forwarding.  2/28/01

Lucrative you say?
  I can figure out how to
go broke doing it.  3/1/01

One good thing about
  my old furnace— it’s only
noisy when it runs.  3/2/01

If a woman is
  friendly she’s either married
or selling something.  3/5/01

But if a man is
  friendly he’s either selling
something or he’s single.  

I’m generous with
  what I have, which means I’m not
very generous.  3/6/01

Shooting deer doesn’t
  excite me— shooting bull, that’s
another matter.  3/7/01

The only way to
  avoid disappointment in
love is not to love.  3/8/01

Tornados favor
  trailer parks as misfortune
favors poverty.  3/9/01

If there’s a month you
  don’t want to be destitute,
it’s January.  3/12/01

Yes objects can talk!
  A bottle of bourbon called
out for me all day.  3/13/01

  usually ill-paid— unlike
the vanity press.  3/14/01

We want a lover
  but need a housekeeper, cook,
cleaner, and concierge.  3/15/01

Why pine for old-time
  religion? You wouldn’t want
old-time medicine.  3/16/01

There’s always cause for
  hope if the whiskey bottle
is at least half-full.  3/19/01

A chance you take with
  bondage photo shoot— model
wants to tie the knot.  3/20/01

Were my name Johnson
  I’d build a dungeon— Master
Johnson’s sex clinic!  3/21/01

Are those who are too
  generous insecure or
overly secure?  3/22/01

Some say they’d like not
  having to make decisions.
Give up shopping eh?  3/23/01

If all gals you ask
  out can’t because of laundry,
think celibacy.  3/26/01

You know you’ve given
  up cooking once all your pots
become foot-soakers.  3/27/01

We suffer it seems
  from information overload,
while starved for wisdom.  3/28/01

Woody’s film slogan—
  The most color you’ll ever
see in black and white.  3/29/01

I can make people
  cry— not over my writing,
over my love life.  3/30/01

Jogging’s my only
  health insurance, whiskey’s my
only medicine.  4/2/01

Slavery is still
  legal, and it’s even a
four-letter word— debt.  4/3/01

If a woman can’t
  throw herself at my feet she
could return my calls.  4/4/01

“Mr. End, here’s your
  brother. I insist that you
talk.” —Making Ends Meet.  4/5/01

Okay, taxes are
  necessary. But changing
clocks? Give us a break.  4/6/01

Everyone’s giving
  me appliances, so no
need getting married.  4/9/01

Women aren’t lacking
  in smarts— testosterone drive
is the deficit.  4/10/01

If you set your sights
  high, you might get everything—
or perhaps nothing.  4/11/01

  can understand you doesn’t
mean you’re a genius.  4/12/01

What do women want?
  No more or no less than what
men want— everything.  4/13/01

A friend described what
  he calls a fast. I call it
being an artist.  4/16/01

Religion transcends
  ideas— if you can’t feel
it, what good is it.  4/17/01

Drawback of being
  visual artist— musicians
get all the women.  4/18/01

Storms aren’t nearly as
  romantic when your roof has
some missing shingles.  4/19/01

I don’t mind being
  poor— it’s the alternative,
being broke, I hate.  4/20/01

You may not feel old
  until you get a doctor
who’s younger than you.  4/23/01

Know your ego’s big
  but not what to do about
it? Just start dating.  4/24/01

I’m so-so in bed—
  not for want of talent, but
for want of practice.  4/25/01

Just survive women
  in this town and you’ll be a
stud anywhere else.  4/26/01

Drawback of being
  sex symbol— wondering if
you’re prize or person.  4/27/01

Despite the drawbacks
  of being a sex symbol,
I’d like to try it.  4/30/01

Discovered Art Bell
  tonight— I feel so at home
it must say something.  5/1/01

Why is it crackpots
  are disparaged? At worst they’re
imaginative.  5/2/01

Psychologists who
  think clowns are disturbed people
are just envious.  5/3/01

Some of my HiKues
  have import, others are just
dogs playing poker.  5/4/01

After all is said
  and done it’s obvious that
more was said than done.  5/7/01

Why fall for actors
  when what they are best at is
being someone else.  5/8/01

Instead of blue dogs
  I’ll paint orange dogs; there’ll be Orange
Dog Republicans.  5/9/01

Often it’s harder
  to exit an affair than
to be dumped yourself.  5/10/01

Broadband is being
  piped through sewers. What does that
say about content?  5/11/01

I’ve always wondered
  what was meant by “a man’s man”—

  legalized— affordable
MLM lessons.  5/15/01

  women but there’s nothing like
doing it yourself.  5/16/01

I’m making my first.  5/21/01

  you’re a little crazy you’re
not of this world.  5/23/01

Riddle: What’s the name
  of Colonel Sander’s secret
jam? —K.Y. Jelly.  5/31/01

Why’s it that when smart
  people talk about smarts they
don’t seem all that smart.  6/1/01

If the medium’s
  the message the messenger
is incompetent.  6/4/01

  love every woman I can’t
love any woman.  6/5/01

At a bar you can
  drink, dance, or shoot pool, just one
of which I’m good at.  6/6/01

Antiques turn back time—
  virtual reality
without computers.  6/7/01

I’m not giving up
  on women— monastery
no, Bangkok maybe.  6/8/01

There are women I’m
  attracted to and other
women who like me.  6/12/01

Women are at least
  as hard to like as they are
easy to look at.  6/13/01

Okay I’ll admit
  it’s better to incur debt
than starve, but not much.  6/14/01

What I’ve learned so far—
  life is too short to waste time
on meaningless jobs.  6/15/01

Any friend who won’t
  find time for you is really
just an acquaintance.  6/18/01

  than Bill Gates is not Bill Gates.

that’s fought over me.  6/20/01

  me only money offers
from Nigeria.  6/22/01

There are times I think
  dating isn’t difficult,
it’s impossible.  6/25/01

Nothing new about
  virtual reality, it’s
what you dream at night.  6/28/01

lesbian’s body.  7/2/01

what you’re rescued from.  7/4/01

  yuck— I’d rather just line them
up and take my pick.  7/11/01

Wonder why same-sex
  acquaintances don’t like you?
How ’bout jealousy.  7/12/01

  be misogynistic, I’m
just telling the truth.  7/17/01

I’m glad when I’m sad

sad because I’m broke.  7/18/01

Women have to scrounge
  for money, guys have to scrounge
for love and money.  7/19/01

  blue town you’re always out of
whiskey on Sunday?  7/23/01

modeling for me.  8/2/01

  of many domains I’m not
master of my own.  8/3/01

woman, she is gone.  6/18/03

  business associates— may
they remain separate.  7/1/03

Idea catchers—
  pen-and-paper stations, placed
at key locations.  7/2/03

It requires no
  genius to rationalize
miscalculations.  7/3/03

There are a million
  ways to make a million, so
why can’t I find one?  7/4/03

  one-tenth of what I sense, they’d
all desire me.  7/11/03

  been touched by the divine, while
others are just touched.  7/12/03

they date after me.  9/23/09c

My health insurance
  is great, only premium
a jug now and then.  9/23/09d

  telephones always worked, now
lucky if they do.  9/25/09

So anxious to get

just enjoy loving.  9/25/09a

Multiple remotes—

it’s the one you need.  9/25/09b

Lots of ads from drug
  companies and lawyers to
sue drug companies.  9/26/09

Jesse James. Tyrone
  Power, Henry Fonda. Fast

I would drink less and
  date more but there are two jugs
for every woman.  9/26/09a

music, and great snacks :)  10/4/09

Fun project— try a

friend. Back Monday night.  10/8/09t

Met biker chick off
  a bad romance on the bus
down from St. Louis.  10/13/09

Asked politely if

housework and cult-play.  10/13/09a

  and unsafe to stuff turkeys—
where will it all end?  10/14/09

rain, rain, and more rain.  10/14/09c

Most Falls are dry but
  rain is still falling and the
lawn is still raging.  10/14/09d

Prices going up
  on my work but must survive
two tough winters first.  10/14/09e

With a monthly check
  I could double prices and
collect my own work.  10/15/09

With income doubled
  could add garage, picket fence,
flagpole, and shutters.  10/15/09a

More than ready for
  a sale and a good round check—
heat for the winter!  10/15/09b

  no sales, accumulate
work, show in New York.  10/15/09c

Twenty-Ten (next year)—

Have water, power,
  but no heat— need to rock and
roll on a sale.  10/16/09

At my Halloween
  party hope someone comes dressed
as an art buyer.  10/16/09a

If you think that my
  prices are too high now wait
about sixteen months.  10/16/09b

I do like those nice
  round checks, the ones with zeros
in twins and triplets.  10/17/09

With a good muse I
  could paint better, sell more, and
upgrade my bourbon.  10/17/09a

Never thought I’d be
  dreaming of a monthly check
instead of mansion.  10/17/09b

by now drank their share.  10/18/09a

Can decorate this
  house for Halloween by not
dusting for two weeks.  10/18/09b

The house is a dump
  but made it mine and wouldn’t
trade for a castle.  10/18/09c

Mess can be good— the
  only truly problem-free
home is a coffin.  10/19/09

Movie break, Wise Blood.
  Warped. Disjointed. Glad I’m not
no crazy preacher.  10/19/09m

someone proves you wrong.  10/19/09b

Life, death, finding a

Thursday’s Game— decent
  comedy, somewhat dated,
good cast, great moments.  10/20/09m

“Hansel and Gretel”
  not healthy for children— made
me a deviant.  10/20/09a

  sick aspirin, coffee, and
whiskey does the trick.  10/21/09a

If I can’t dig a
  woman I can at least dig
unitheism.  10/21/09b

Productive day— mowed
  the back yard, did remaining
cleanup from ice storm.  10/21/09c

Had a friend who talked
  about how quickly he could
drink through his money.  10/21/09d

Cussed my computer
  so many times it must have
a hotline to hell.  10/21/09e

High maintenance not
  always about money— long
rubs, acupressure.  10/22/09

My door is always
  open except when locked— gone,
sleeping, or lucky.  10/22/09a

When rechargeables
  decide to go dead they get
right down to business.  10/22/09b

It’s a challenge when
  each of you self-medicates
in a different way.  10/22/09c

Online fantasy
  to offline reality—
some just can’t do it.  10/22/09d

Women have allure,
  so men have to work harder
to maintain their lead.  10/22/09e

If it wasn’t for
  “Stuff”-My-Dad-Says would Twitter
be worth the bother?  10/22/09f

Need people to join
  the unitheist movement—
I’ve joined enough stuff.  10/23/09

Movie, “Jesus of
  Montreal.” Passion Play is
updated, backlash.  10/23/09m

Economics is
  like baseball— without rules and
umpires there’s no game.  10/23/09a

Family launches
  us into being but then
can obstruct being.  10/23/09b

On health kick— no more
  than half-stick of butter per
serving of popcorn.  10/23/09c

Religion is to
  Discordianism as
art to anti-art.  10/24/09

If not the hardest
  guy to meet be the hardest
guy to get rid of.  10/24/09a

If you don’t renew
  your domain name it can wreck
your search position.  10/24/09b

Comments shuffled, times
  out of order— whoever
changed Facebook, be gone!  10/24/09c

Women just come and
  go— mostly go— but bourbon
never disappoints.  10/25/09

Getting ready for
  Halloween party— pruning,
site for fire pit.  10/25/09a

  afford heat would enhance my
success with women.  10/25/09b

Movie “September”—
  failed writer sweeps all the
women off their feet.  10/25/09c

Must retire our
  way out of the recession—
the jobs just aren’t there.  10/25/09d

In one sense nothing
  matters, in another sense
everything matters.  10/26/09

Way to make money
  online— get people to pay
you to tell them how.  10/26/09a

Is there a dollar

that I know has one.  10/26/09b

Made my best pot of
  chili ever, ate four bowls
and got bellyache.  10/27/09

When I tire of
  fighting off women I hunt
new ones to fight off.  10/28/09

In late charge cycle—
  having to pay late charges,
causing more late bills.  10/29/09

The sweat lodge guru
  charges so much you have to
be rich to get rich.  10/29/09a

One good thing about
  being older— you really
weren’t born yesterday.  10/30/09

Was going to be
  Arthur but now Merlin— hope
no Viviens show :)  10/31/09

give your peeps the creeps.  10/31/09a

everything’s legal.  11/5/09

And Justice For All
  love’s easier than law, not
to mention flying.  11/5/09m

We’ll probably have
  several Indian summers,
some lasting minutes.  11/5/09a

No blanket fires
  this winter— two electrics
but neither one works.  11/5/09b

Good pyramid scheme—
  for every good deed someone
does for you do two.  11/5/09c

There are times when the
  way to accomplish the most
is to do nothing.  11/5/09d

Should I invest in
  natural gas or whiskey for
heat? Can’t afford both.  11/5/09e

Far as I’m concerned
  winter could just last a week
and be long enough.  11/5/09f

Too much on drinking,
  women, and laughter? They’re the
keys to happiness.  11/5/09g

  time, not half, so thankfully
I'm not bipolar.  11/5/09h

  a couple of drinks, it so
means getting wasted.  11/7/09

  mental patients but the staff
that needs locking up.  11/7/09a

— okay-to-good movie
perfect for riffing.  11/7/09b

Studios are rooms
  in which, like Ivan Albright,
to constipate rooms.  11/8/09

Like my Christmases
  white and coffee black, women
soft and liquor hard.  11/9/09

Curious creatures
  ducks, goats, and rabbits— midway
between pets and meat.  11/9/09a

Popcorn at night, French
  toast the next morning fried in
buttery melt-pan.  11/9/09b

Can’t get married— not
  because I don’t want to, just
can’t afford the ring.  11/10/09

Figured why dating’s
  slow now— women can’t believe
I’m available.  11/10/09a

  Americans overseas
buying art treasures.  11/10/09x

Modern medicine
  rocks but whiskey still works else

  better but Howdy Doody
produced Warren Farr.  11/11/09a

Fargo. Have Eighty-
  Seven Ciera, but blue.
Paint tan for homage?  11/11/09m

yet an easy read.  11/12/09

Have a much higher
  opinion of myself than
most, but they’ll catch up.  11/12/09a

The problem is if

“You’re right, shouldn’t have.”  11/25/09b

Excited about
  friends, music, and craziness
at party tonight.  11/28/09

Just two splashes at

opens at first touch.  12/2/09a

I couldn’t get used
  to business or politics,
much less prison life.  12/3/09

to think about it.  12/21/09

Spent three hours on
  hair, won’t take three minutes to
burn the Christmas tree.  12/22/09

Flammables in stand,
  starter fluid on tinsel,
lights, and ornaments.  12/22/09a

Thought it was meant to
  be, she thought it wasn’t— in
twenty years we’ll laugh.  12/23/09

Christmas tree afire—
  tinsel melting, lights crackling,
ornaments bursting.  12/23/09a

Enjoying a great
  love life, just wish it wasn’t

to see the New Year.  12/31/09

Kentucky, the home
  of fine bourbon, fast horses
and long cave systems.  1/1/10

How narrow the fate
  between lonely despair and
perfect happiness.  1/2/10

I can be a slow
  learner, especially when
it comes to women.  1/3/10

Not an entity,
  entity itself— nor a
being, beingness.  1/5/10

Winter’s the season
  when a single person most
hates being single.  1/5/10a

they can’t afford them.  1/11/10a

Tone up enough to
  attract but not so much that
people think you’re gay.  1/13/10

  cultiness are shown by all
organizations.  1/17/10

The unknown’s not by
  virtue of mystery more
divine than the known.  1/18/10

Birthday should have been
  happy, with all the greetings,
but glad this one’s done.  1/21/10

  prefer face-to-face and just
be done with Facebook?  1/27/10

A hundred million
  women right for me— wish I
could meet one of them.  1/28/10

what they cast away.  1/31/10
