Syracuse snowflakes
meet their fate on the blade of
my shovel of doom

I enjoy writing and I occasionally submit my work to contests, such as “Bulwer-Lytton” and “Imitation Hemingway.”

I was intrigued by the haiku format, so I decided to give it a try. As for the subject of the poem, I thought that a winter weather theme might be appropriate.

I didn’t have to give it that much thought something to do with the weather I suppose.

Armory Square is
well preserved, and a dozen
cars are traffic jam

Having grown up in the early days of “Mad” magazine, I enjoy satire, puns and word play in general.

I also have some nostalgic memories of Armory Square, when it was a rather gritty section of town. There was a the circus at the Armory; the billiard table company on Walton Street, with its large painted sign on the side of the brick building, as seen while riding a city bus; a long-ago job interview at one of the several meat wholesalers, also on Walton.

My poem is a tip of the cap to the square.
