Impressions of Stitches East: A collection of haiku

To a Coffee Faucet

Silver-man’ed fox
You made a trip to the loo
Sound mucho sexy.

Lunch in Baltimore

Long lines snake around
For grease, fried foods, and hot dogs
Have you no green veg?

I Don’t Mean Mably

Those mischievous eyes
Your British accent slays me
Charm personified

For the Baltimore City Planners

You built a large hall
But where, dear God, tell me where
Is all the parking?

Little Ricky Stitches
Dragon applique?
I'm sure I saw the same jeans
At T-N-N-A.

Tricky Tricot

Blogger Man with Balls
Have you only been knitting
A measly five years?

Fashions (with apologies to L.M.)

Scarves, ponchos, fun fur
A profound sufficiency.
Please learn to fair isle.

Wendy beat me to it, so I guess I'll snicker instead. Once again, you're spot on.

Heh. Where's the pix to illustrate the haiku? Me wants photos! Especially of Dragon Boy's jeans.

They were hard-ass on the photogs this year. I'm gonna blog about it but a podcaster I know had her equipment confiscated and the X-men's goons were awfully cranky about it. They said she needed "press credentials."
