Two haiku

Years ago, a line came to me. I liked it and made it the first line of a haiku. Years later I remembered part — part — of that haiku, and when I couldn't find the original I decided to retry writing it.

Going through a notebook today, I found the original. Here it is:

Impossible foods:
Chunky air, noise with ketchup,
Sliced Water on Rye.

That was from August 2001. In June 2016 I wrote this:

Impossible foods:
Barbecued brain waves; brick sticks;
Sliced water on rye.

Which do you like better?
