Good job. I like haiku that is quick and says a 'truth'! Read Wabi Sabi for Writers last week and learned a lot about haiku but I still think it's just what you 'see' or 'know'. The exact format seems only there to be a guideline. I'd love a link - thanks for asking!

TW, you are very welcome.

PJD, I am LMAO...too funny. In Texas we call them gas stations...maybe I should have said "petrol" stations? From one windbag to another. ;)

KH, thank you and thx for visiting.

Perfect, seriously befitting, if you know where I live, that is where the teens are.

This took me back to high school, being a teen on the corner where a gas station used to stand. :)

Ha! I jumped in my seat! Great "mock" haiku. Across from my HS would have been "gossip and smoke cigarettes." Of course, that was a hundred years ago.

TC, I think there were those kinds of gas stations around every school...I know we had one. THX for stopping by.

UL,I'm glad you made it by today too. :)

Richard, I can certainly relate but I not ready to say it was a hundred years ago though it sometimes feels that way.

What a great image. Reminds me of when I was a teenager hanging out in the Plaza back home. Thanks for allowing the trip down memory lane. Have a nice weekend.

So they have those gas stations and hangouts where you are, too? :)

Very nicely done. I'd say this week's words were among the more difficult to fit into a short haiku.

So true, Bone. It seems to me the last several 3WW prompts have been a challenge for me but I like makes me work harder and that is good.
