Game Enjambment is a reoccurring poetry series on games and gaming.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf often wants you to send letters to your animal neighbors to improve their relationships, send them furniture you want in their house, or get them to send you presents back. They occasionally like to show off these letters to you or to other people that visit, so when I started mailing my neighbors gifts, I decided to make them haiku so I could be entertained by them when I saw them again.

It’s a good thing I’m easily entertained.

Decor haiku, by Tia Kalla,. Graphics from Animal Crossing: New Leaf, released by Nintendo, 2012.

You’d better display this:
This is my attempt
to give you some themed decor
Please do not fail me

Another decor haiku, by Tia Kalla,. Graphics from Animal Crossing: New Leaf, released by Nintendo, 2012.

This is not a compliment about your taste:

who would actually want this
Please don’t give it back

It really does:
Polka dotted chair

you coat it in gold

Babe, it’s cold outside
Not trying to creep you out

Rhyme haiku, by Tia Kalla,. Graphics from Animal Crossing: New Leaf, released by Nintendo, 2012.

I was late and it was tired:
Loom, loom, it’s a loom
Why send a loom for your room?
I like rhyming things

After reading these,
contemplating poet skills,
I’ll stick to retail.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
