More Haiku: What Went on in Vegas

Las Vegas is a city you can’t quite love but can’t quite hate. It pushes tacky so far that it almost becomes charming. We spent a hot 3 July days there fulfilling a long-time birthday wish of a deserving octogenarian, and I was haiku-inspired.

Smoky, sweltering
Proudly tacky, glittering
Crowded, loud, still fun

Fine cuisine, slot machines
Blackjack, anyone?
