Two Tacky

John M. Bennett sends me a thanks for my last card to him, and he includes two of his tacky little pamphlets (TLPs). Each TLP is a single sheet of paper folded twice and stapled to form a small uncut booklet: to see half the pages, the reader has to pull open the pages and peer into a cone of darkness or the reader must cut the top seam to separate the pages.

One of the pamphlets is "Singularity," with Andrew Topel collaborating, and the other is "Dad Dying Haiku." The latter John wrote in memoriam of his father John W. Bennett, and it includes classic Bennettian haiku like
