Haiku for the Loquacious

Give my friend Stacy McKnight a challenge — "write a haiku" — and watch what she does!

curtailed by the meters chain.
brevity is not for me!
I am loquacious.
slave, toil, suffer
emotion labored,
meaning lost to rule.
but is it just me?
despairing of the right word,
constrained by the form.
yes! it is just me,
the aesthetic of
occident not orient
for the right poet
strictures are inspiring,
resulting in art!
Thanks to Stacy for her creativity and poetry. There's more haiku fun to follow!
