Instruction Booklet for the Machine

The haibun is the combination of two poems: a prose poem and haiku. The form was popularized by the 17th century Japanese poet Matsuo Basho. Both the prose poem and haiku typically communicate with each other, though poets employ different strategies for this communication—some doing so subtly, while others are more direct.

Cracking America! They Try!
The machine will try, try again!
Let’s see how far hmmm, a virus=control!
“Peaceful protests” with stand-down orders.
Censorship, free speech is out!
The election begins; it’s Trump vs. the Machine.
Tra-la ♫… make it obvious, the cheating.
Importantly don’t hide the fraud; just deny it!
Drag the counting on and on, oh! the suspense,
Yes, yes, the anxiety too! Our perfect candidate,
He has no clue. One more ingredient, VISIBILITY!
Let them see our occult, overt activity.

Little by little, remove this Victory!
It’s happening as the machine has planned.
Citizens, our plan, their anger, they reach for weapons.

A Civil War, the Crack! They THINK!

The Haiku

Hate crimes never win

Truth always rises
