So our iPhone died on the last business trip, meaning we had nothing to do on the plane except pretend to be invisible, get all sweaty-palmed with thoughts of crashing, or think up haikus. Sure, our seatmates looked at us a little strange as we counted syllables (on our fingers, all classy-like) but it passed the time. We quickly found that once you enter haiku-land, it's hard to escape. So we cut off this list at 13 but we assure you there were many more, all of them worse, and yes, we sometimes play a little fast and loose with our syllable counts when we're feeling extra bad-ass English major rebel (with glasses, but PUNK glasses we tell ourselves). We're pretty sure you can come up with way better versions than we did (you probably count syllables in your head like an adult too), and we'd love to hear them. Tweet your best with hashtag #airplanehaiku at @NextMajor and we just might illustrate them to show our love.
