The Haiku That Almost Was

If this rhymes, it will
be a miracle. Thank God
we just count syllables.

This might have been posted sooner, if I hadn’t spent a delirious amount of time on the internet asking if there was a word for a not-quite haiku of eighteen syllables. I came up for air without an answer.

Then I spent ten minutes deciding whether it should be printed on three lines or two. It felt cleverer on three.
