23.1.22 Go Dog Go Cafe Haibun

 The Wind Blows by Hugo Simberg, 1897 Finnish National Gallery

It’s a sort of mid-January middling-damp. It’s drizzly. Dwet. Grey. Dwippy. Like cornflake-sog in a puddle of tepid milk. It’s January when people feel entitled to leave the dwishes and coffee cups on the twable for some other dweeb on a dwet day to clear away. And I’ve been thinking about that word ‘grumpy’ – and came to a conclusion that it should be worn like a raincoat. Not worn always. Just sometimes. When appropriate. Definitely January attire.

January is
a big hump and a pimple,
and squeaks of damp sick

  1. Wow. This is so interesting! All the “w”s that suddenly disappear. And then that sentence which David mentioned and which I love too. ANd then that awful (in a brilliant way) haiku. Makes me very glad I don’t live in England in January. lol. Some amazing stuff in this one.
