So I came across a couple of haikus about personal space I wrote back in 2010 at a workshop hosted by Respect Da Mic (my former slam team). They made me chuckle a bit so I thought I’d share them with you guys. I can’t remember the exact prompt but I believe we had to write about something we felt strongly about so I picked personal space because I HATE when people invade mine. this was the result:
Personal space: in motion
even objects in mirror do not appear closer than you…reverse!
Personal space: interactions of the 3rd kind
Allen invasions are more welcomed than your foul breath invasion.
Personl space: a love tail
when they said keep close to ones you love, I don’t they meant stalk them. Fail!
Personal space: therapy needed
I’m not claustrophobic until I see you cuz you cause rooms to shrink!
