Fauxku Choo Choo (the play's the thing)
#1

Abridged Fauxku Choo Choo guidelines for lazy people:


1. Any TINY poem of 1 to 4 lines (or a 5 line limerick) - does not have to be haiku-like.
2. Poem includes 2 significant words from the preceding one.
      (Tense and plurality may be changed -- homonyms, other inventive wordplay, is winked at.)
3. Poem reflects some aspect of the previous poem (encouraged but not obligatory).

also:
4. Copy last poem and repeat it above your poem in your own post.
5. It's OK to play with yourself. (Post replies to you own poem.)
6. If the previous poem doesn't fit the guidelines:
      Either mention this politely, or continue on as if nothing happened,
      or use the poem before it, or strike off on your own. (See guideline 3 above.)
7. It's OK to add TINY extraneous (or not) notes.
8. Ray can do whatever he wants as he is the One True God (of Fauxku Choo Choo).


The Officious Fauxku Choo Choo (the play's the thing)
Rules with Explications Thereof*

contemporaneously known as The One True Rules*

Your TINY poem should:

1. Use 2 or more significant words from the previous poem.
        (Tense and plurality may be changed -- homonyms and adventurous word-play are encouraged .)

2. Poem reflects some aspect of the previous poem (encouraged but not obligatory).

3. Contain 1 to 4 lines, or be a limerick.

4. Be a fauxku, pseudoku, otherku** (seebelow), a real haiku (not that
anyone really knows what one is), limerick, or a whatever-you-please
(e.g. metaphorically dense  rhyming Nyāya Sūtra). Just make it TINY.
(And since this is fake art, TINY is not defined.)

Ancillary Rules:

5. If miscalculation, confusion, lapse in judgment, good intentions, ill temper,
addled thinking, or self-deception lead to snarl; don't try to communicate,
don't try to resolve: Just write something (e.g. lists of various vegetables
or something about dog diapers) and keep moving.

6. Use the "New Reply" button to pathetically attempt to impede the inevitable.

7. And YES!  It's OK to play with yourself.

8. It's OK to add TINY extraneous (or not) notes.

9. Ray can do whatever he wants to do as he is the One True God.

10. Anyone else must religiously obey these rules unless a spirit has appeared to them
and suggested that it might be OK, just this once, to tell Ray to go fuck himself.

**otherku: fauxku, pseudoku, parody-ku, paraku, urku, calypsoku,
circumku, contraku, cryptoku, psychoku, forniku, galactiku, juxtaku,
mechaniku, numbku, palinku, platyku, pneuku, pornku, kineku,
cephal, retroku, somaku, subku, uberku, umbiliku, zenku,
ironiku, farciku, lowku, turdku, fucku, kukukachooku

My life, -
How much more of it remains?
The night is brief.
- Shiki

Over the wintry
forest, winds howl in rage
with no leaves to blow.
- Soseki

Don’t weep, insects –
Lovers, stars themselves,
Must part.
- Issa

autumn winds
in the sliding door's opening
a sharp voice
- Basho

the moon so pure
a wandering monk carries it
across the sand
- Basho

The winter storm
Hid in the bamboo grove
And quieted away.
- Basho

peonies --
hundreds swaying
like a hot bath
MORI Sumio

summer grasses——
the wheels of the locomotive
come to a stop

Under the protection of a big tree,
People's hearts are at rest."
