I am a published haikuist and mean

The local weekly alternative newspaper Isthmus, for whom Kenneth is currently the arts and entertainment editor, asked readers to submit haiku about Madison for the Annual Manual supplement.

My poem, which-- as I understand it-- was selected for inclusion anonymously and without Kenneth's interference-- appears below.

The only reason I haven't yet responded to this is that I'm having trouble honoring it with a paltry comment. suffice it to say that I love you.

Woke up thinking of plump drab alderpersons. May retire to Madison.
