In the Old Hotel


In the old hotel
I set aside my ego,
hoping for some sleep.
~~ ~~ ~~
in the old hotel
unwashed sheets and cockroaches
damaging my dreams
~~ ~~ ~~
in the old hotel
no legitimate reason
to stay one more night

  1. I think not!

  2. yes, I’ve had that happen. We went to one hotel with my daughter she took one look and said I’m not staying here. Needless to say we didn’t stay.

  3. What a predicament!! A difficult situation in that old hotel, and my reaction too would be similar to yours….run!!

  4. We are consumers! We teach them a lesson! Nicely MMT!


  5. when confronted with a room similar to yours in the haikus, my husband and I left before staying even one night!
