Alternate Universe

Day 27 of NaPoWriMo.  Today’s prompt is to write a hay(na)ku.  A varian of haiku – it has 3-line stanza “where the first line has one word, the second line has two words, and the third line has three words”.  I chained a few together into a hay(na)ku sonnet based on an example – 4 stanzas ending in a couplet.  Just like the example, the couplet also has 6 words, which of course, I stretched  the rules a bit by using hyphenated words.

Direction intact
In Hawkins’ multiverse.

genome can
resurrect woolly mammoth.

under Yellowstone
can destroy USA.

Committee says
What climate change?

Doomsday isn't instantaneous,
It's slo-mo train-wreck.
