I love these. Just found out about them and their author, John Nicoll, yesterday and he’s agreed to submit a new poem every week. 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.”

Let’s kick things off with Level Up:

“Businessman types hard
Must be really important
Brick Breaker high score”
