Reality time
is not nearly as much fun
as fantasy time.

And it’s definitely fantasy time, as pop surrealist Kenny Scharf illustrates Ross Venokur’s zesty, zany poems written in the ancient Japanese form of haiku. While keeping to haiku’s strict limit of three lines totaling seventeen syllables — five, then seven, then five — Venokur and Scharf create an alternate universe in which Rossi the dog-boy barks at the moon, Anne becomes an eggplant, and a vacuum cleaner turns on its owner.
