haiku

up early for work.
crap, ants swarming kitchen sink.
the battle begins.

*****

killing ants is not
as simple as it appears.
sneaky wee fuckers.

*****

shit on a stick fuck.
they are fucking everywhere.
where do they come from?

*****

they've stolen the cat.
with luck, the brave Westley will
eat their precious queen.

*****

finish with the ants.
now to feed the seahorses
and rush out the door.

*****

driving to work: crap!
forgot my wallet and cell.
stupid fucking ants.

*****

arrive at work: late.
wait -- boss is on vacation!
much loud rejoicing.

*****

glance at calendar --
fuck! forgot my dad's birthday!
call on Homestore's dime.

*****

father is not home.
now: call exterminator.
sigh. what's the damn use?

*****

last thing: CSP.
wrack brain for fresh, new content.
hello to haikus.

*****

Clark Schpiell update done.
5pm? How time does fly!
no work done today.

Despite all this, he still has to hold down a day job in the dot-com world, where he does product and interaction design. His acting has been called "committed," "detailed," "fearless," "hilarious" and "heart-rending" by the LA Times and Backstage West. His writing has been called "articulate and commanding" and "eminently readable" by Flak Magazine. His tenth grade Geometry teacher said he "does not work well in groups." | more essays by David
