Haiku: Things You Should Not Wear Outside Your Clothes*

Political views:
let them drive you to action
or they're wasted wind.

Yesterday's Gnocchi:
a delight, both taste and sound,
don't throw up your din.

Perfume: subtlety
is everything, linger close
to your secret sin.

Though it might intrigue
voyeurs, your navel: it's meant
for a private spin.

Bra's an exception:
when it stands for women's rights,
not if fashion trend.

No heart on your sleeve,
baby: they'll rip you apart --
find the one true friend.
