Siamese silhouette twin trees are what someone sees.

They are really dark sideburns
connected by hair or “leaves”.

A green light for a stopped driver was unknown. Instead of noticing that light, he was focused on his phone.

The motorist behind him wanted to go, was blocked, and felt wronged;
so the driver that’s on his phone received a honk.
Flowing would be the traffic if he wasn’t distracted.
One driver’s failure causes others to be impacted.
Towards surrounding activity (after turning on the engine),
that driver has got to pay more attention.

The pigtails of a distant woman appeared thin, shiny, and metallic.

Those pigtails are really earrings; to keep calling them pigtails would be invalid.

A receipt paper roll and a toilet paper roll

both appear related and might share a similar role.
They could be tossed or go to a hole.
This observation may (or may not) be droll.

Haiku about Receipts with Coupons

Long and unwanted
receipts with coupons can be
like toilet paper.

A celebrity used to look naturally attractive; now that person looks distorted and plastic.

Social pressure and surgery can be a price of fame.
They can lead to or reveal insecurities or shame.
Cosmetic vs authentic? Often overrated is the artificial.
There’s beauty and meaning in what’s true and original.
