White Rock Home Tour Poets

I’ve been kind of hating boys recently. Guess what made me hate them less? This haiku contest. I got two entries I liked so much—both submitted by men!—that I asked the good folks over at the White Rock Home Tour headquarters if I could have an extra pair of tickets. Everybody else: go here to find out how to buy tickets. Jump for smile-worthy haikus about midcentury modern.

nineteen-fifties homes
delightful if designed well
forever modern


Mod squad rules today.
Ornament—bah—who needs it?
It’s hip to be spare.
