— Marcel Duchamp

The word bizkū is my creation. It’s a twist on traditional haiku — the short-form Japanese poetry. Three lines, 5-7-5 syllables. 429 entries and counting. Each bizkū delivers a poignant critique.
Bizkūs Volumes I & II (Amazon, Go Booklets) contain 200 entries in each volume. Samples here are taken from the first 75.
