The essence of haiku is "cutting" (kiru). This is often represented by the juxtaposition of two images or ideas and a kireji ("cutting word") between them, a kind of verbal punctuation mark which signals the moment of separation and colours the manner in which the juxtaposed elements are related.

I like the "underground shuttle to Los Alamos." Reads like a punch line, somehow. (Not dissing Los Alamos; I've never been there and know nothing about the place. And I'm sure there's a reason why it has to be that city. It's just somehow... oddly specific in this context, or something).
If you want drama to stop following you everywhere, try letting go of the leash.

abstruse (adj.) 1590s, from M.Fr. abstrus (16c.) or directly from L. abstrusus, pp. of abstrudere "conceal," lit. "to thrust away," from ab- "away" (see ab-) + trudere "to thrust, push" (see extrusion). Related: Abstrusely; abstruseness.

Los Alamos is one of the nuclear laboratories where they develop nuclear weapons.

Overview: The Earth rotates at approx. 1,000 MPH. We can harness the energy from the Earth's natural rotation and this is about as sustainable, clean, and abundant source of energy as it gets.

There's courage involved if you want
to become truth. There is a broken-

open place in a lover. Where are
those qualities of bravery and sharp

compassion in this group? What's the
use of old and frozen thought? I want

a howling hurt. This is not a treasury
where gold is stored; this is for copper.

We alchemists look for talent that
can heat up and change. Lukewarm

won't do. Halfhearted holding back,
well-enough getting by? Not here.
fuck you, it's magic
