Half-Arsed Haiku – 14 Jan 2015


On Having An Injection at the Dentist Earlier

I sit, quietly
slurping hot chocolate with
a marshmallow mouth.

Linked (tenuously) to Carpe Diem Haiku a Day Writing techniques #2, Onomatopoeia


[A note for those of you in, or visiting, Edinburgh who are trying to avoid dairy stuff – my delightful hot chocolate and date slice were both vegan (hurrah!) and from The Caffeine Drip – a little basement South African stylee cafe and bakery.  It as a whole manner of exciting breakfast things including a veggie sausage roll with artichoke and sun-dried tomato, good coffee for those of you who like the real deal (and a nice decaff and almond milk latte for those of us who are trying to take all the fun out of it!), soups, sandwiches, wraps and  strange dried things for the meat eaters. Hot chocolate was raw cacao powder, hazelnut syrup and almond milk. Mmmm… didn’t dribble it once, even though half of my face was still numb and my lips felt fat! My replaced filling held up too! ]
