Haiku Ameriku

Wind blows through iced-over branches:
a flirting woman fingers her pearls.

as this blunt tube rams through the dark.

Cuz she had fuck wi' me regulah.

'Tchoo lookin' at, mofo?
Got a prob'm? What's yuh prob'm?
'N why shid I keah [care]?

F'git [forget: one syllable] abaht [it] -- I was so skeahed [scared]:
