Note: Technically, this poem (and many of the poems I share on this blog, actually) is a senryu, sometimes referred to as a “human haiku.” These poems follow the same format as a haiku—three, short lines capturing the essence of a moment—but they deal with human nature and human actions, often ironically or satirically. While this poem does contain subtle season markers as haiku often do—”storm” hints at winter snow, “game day” hints at football season, so fall or winter—the reference is a purely human one. It can often be challenging to distinguish the difference between senryu and haiku, and some writers (including myself, usually) may not bother to even make the distinction. But I thought it would be of interest to some readers to learn of this sub-genre, of sorts, of short form poetry.
