Senryu : Calling Intergalactic AAA

calling for a tow
ship is down, cargo escaped
waiting for light years

senryu by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

Easy mission they said. Pick up a few specimens from just beyond the red star.

Okay, fine. But did they have to assign me the oldest ship in the fleet? Geez.

Now here I am, waiting for a tow. How long does it take anyways to warp a few light years?

Halloween Senryu : Zombies

Amber yelled, “Back off!
I am not on your diet”
Zombies don’t listen

Zombies Prefer Redheads: a Halloween tale

Fiery-haired Amber grumbles, “Let’s go to the outdoor concert, she says. Cool autumn night, great music. It’ll be fun, she says. Fun, my ass! Hungry zombie cheerleaders show up. Uh huh. You ever see a cheerleader go off her diet? It’s not a pretty sight.”

Amber sets the pump shotgun against her shoulder,

“Back off! I am not on your diet!”

Once Kelly could belt out cheers and handle the most intricate routines. Now the zombie cheerleader moans, shambling forward.

Amber steps back, falling over a stone. She manages to keep ahold of the shotgun as she goes down. “Damn it, if you don’t back off, I’m going to blow your head off!”

And so she does.

Pinkie is not tamed
snarling, biting a close hand
warning done, she purrs

senryu by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

I admit Pinkie is schizoid.  When she was a kitten, she once brought home a baby rattlesnake.  Scared mom who killed it right away.

When you try to pet Pinkie she doesn’t know whether she should bite you or purr so she does both.  She prefers to be petted with your foot.  Crazy cat. But if you’re sick, she’ll lie by you all day, keeping you company without complaining.  That’s when she knows exactly what to do.
