Letters to the Editor
by Elaine Chan
To keep letters brief, it is true
That some would say, “Make them haiku.”
But if you’ve designs
On adding more lines
a limerick, maybe, would do?
Published in the San Francisco Chronicle, June 1995. I’ve added the title here to give it a context, published as a letter to the newspaper’s editor among at least a dozen editorial haiku that appeared in the paper from June 1 to 29, 1995.
