Metro Haikus by John Nicoll Vol. 4 – Paranoico. You can spot John on the Red Line commuting between Brookland and Bethesda. “MetroHaikuDC‘s daily transit musings are brightening DC’s metro tunnels, 17 syllables at a time. I started writing a haiku a day on my 40 minute daily train ride to and from work. It passes the time and keeps things lighthearted in some of the metro’s darkest times.”

Please enjoy Paranoico this week:

Talking about me
They think I don’t speak Spanish
They are right, I don’t
