Haiku Challenge for Nov. 12: ‘Sell’

Today’s haiku challenge:

My style is the five/seven/five syllable structure. Here are my 10 haiku poems:

you can sell me down
the river; I’ll drift like a
log with growing moss.

let me sell you on
us; what we had together.
You close the door, though.

my sell by date has
expired, spoiled milk left in the
refrigerator.

fire sale: shoes to sell
belonged to a dead man once,
but he couldn’t fill them.

sell my belongings:
longing and loss bundled in
the folds of my brain.

sell my belongings:
depression, anxiety.
They are done with me.

sell my room, but paint
over the pain splashed on the
walls like a Pollock.

sell me at bargain
price — misfit toy — batteries
are not included.

you can sell me the
dead flowers for my mantle;
my new friends to have.

pitch life, sell me on
it: unending pain until
death washes ashore.
