  1. Art must change anew
    for now we have machines which
    compute our new haiku.

    It has always been my contention that American haiku does not have to conform to the 5/7/5 syllable or line rules of Japanese haiku. You can write an American haiku with as little as ten syllables:

    Listening to the rain
    after midnight.

    Conversely, to translate your original haiku into Japanese would require considerably more syllables than 17.
