As for the lack of bodyguard, I told him I would text a friend my location when I finally went on the date and just chalk it up to one of the many sacrifices we must make for our art. By the end of the week, I had more than 120 matches, and about half of them wrote me haiku.
I sent these poems to Josh, and after choosing his top five favorite haiku, this is what he had to say (I titled the poems myself).
2, covering the poems we published between 20 here on the blog – so we’ll keep you informed about that.
We also have some plans to start a different journal, more suitable to our time constraints.
Our network of black women in Haiku is the perfect place to make blacked friends or find a black girlfriend in Haiku.
