Haikus from Friends

Allison Parker

From friendship has grown
A deep love for each other
Happiness always

A party of five
Now two love each other lots
We must reunite

Rob Toombs

kate is my loud friend
dave is my not so loud friend.
cats. balls. internet.

Kosett Hisaw

Kate and Dave will wed
all will be right with their world
honeymoon night fun

Kate loveth yellow less
than Dave who she does adore
but it’s a close one

Dave saw Kate in school
the rest was just history
wedding bells will ring

Violet is sad
why can’t I be a bridesmaid?
I like yellow too

The wedding is near
KoKo needs a date you know
or she will steal Dave

Kate and Dave Whitley
what a lovely sound that is
I am so jealous

Max Everett

Dave plays drums, Pit-Pat
No one can hear Dave play drums
Dave is a baby

Dave likes Chicken Sandwich
Mustard only, please, thank you
Dave hates other sauce

Dave likes Socrates
He enjoys philosophy
Frog on log with flute

Joey and Delores Brennan

blue shoes, yellow shoes
quiet face, less quiet face–yeah
it’s pretty perfect

cats were fun before
but that’s no longer enough
go now, make babies

one ring to rule them
two cats to also rule them
good luck with that, y’all

Kelly Butler

“5 years ago”
When we started draw-
ing together, I hoped we’d
wake up together…

“My New Favorite Color”
My window spilled it
on your smile when you confessed
(I call it Full Sun).

Charis Boyett

A tree trunk stands tall,
faithful, strong; branches filled with
dancing yellow leaves.

Sara Renfroe

What’s better than love
Maybe cats that are in love
Cats named Kate and Dave

Robert Olen Butler

“A Little Pledge”
My Kelly’s dear Kate
draws a pattern sweet and bold:
a heart on Dave’s brow.

Andrew Le

They’re such a good pair
’cause he’s good at listening
and she talks a lot.

Joan Whitley

Cats, Macs, Pantone, Art
Typesetting their family tree

Kate is vivacious and warm
Perfect together

Amor incolit
Sicut feles praeterquam
Manum non mordet

BEGIN 7:13 PM NASHVILLE TIME

NEW FANGLED GADGETS
OLD FASHIONED AND TIMELESS MINDS
THE EARTH SPINS AND SPINS

WE LEARN WHAT WE LEARN
AND ONLY HEAR WHAT IS SAID
WHILE LOVE CONTINUES

SOUNDS SWEET AS MUSIC
EVADE OUR STUBBORN EARDRUMS
RING THAT HAMMER LOUD

SEE MISSISSIPPI
BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN ARISE
IN SPITE OF HER HATE

NEW BOURBON DRINK 7:29PM NASHVILLE TIME

THE GOOD LORD PROVIDES
BUT SATAN NEGOTIATES
TAKE WHAT WE CAN GET

TOUGHER THAN YOU THOUGHT
MORE BEAUTY THAN YOU CAN HOLD
A FRIEND WILL SAVE YOU

AIR SMELLS LIKE FLOWERS
FLOWERS SMELL LIKE RACCOON TURD
WHAT DO RACCOONS EAT?

THE EARTH SPINS SO FAST
WE HOLD ON BEST WE KNOW HOW
KNOWN AS GRAVITY

YAZOO CITY GAL
JACKSONTOWN TYPE OF FELLOW
SING THOSE DELTA BLUES

THE WARS OF THE PAST
ROMANCES OF HISTORY
AND WHAT HAVE WE LEARNED?

NEW BOURBON DRINK 7:57PM NASHVILLE TIME

THAT BIG OLE RIVER
HAS SEEN WHAT CAME BEFORE YOU
IT WILL SEE AFTER

MAY OUR LOVE EXTEND
AND OUR BLIND HATRED RETRACT
OUR FLAWS CAN BE MATCHED

UNCLE DENNIS SAID
YOU BE GLAD YOU ARE DOWN THERE
THE SOUTH WILL NOT RISE

MARRIAGE IS A LENGTH
WHILE FORGIVENESS IS A WIDTH
AND LOVE IS A DEPTH

I HEAR LONELY BLUES
WHILE I STILL SEE CROWDED BARS
TAKE HEARTBREAK ELSEWHERE

WE DO WHAT WE CAN
OUR HANDS SHAKE AND OUR BRAIN FAILS
OUR HEART KNOWS NO DEBT

YOU FOUGHT YOUR HARDEST
THEY THEY ONLY HEAR WHAT THEY CAN
GUTS STRONGER THAN MINDS

YOU LOSE YOUR CAR KEYS
YOU MISPLACE YOUR DEBIT CARD
YOU CAN’T LOSE YOUR SOUL

MISSISSIPPI’S HERE
YOU CAN TRAVEL WHEREVER
MISSISSIPPI’S HERE

WHEN THE MIRROR STINGS
REFUGE MAY ALWAYS BE FOUND
IN A LOVER’S SOUL

END 8:19PM NASHVILLE TIME NO MORE BOURBON.
