There's a scene I love in Umberto Eco's Foucault's pendulum: the Milanese editor, Jacopo Belbo, and his friend Casaubon are weaving plots from wacky manuscripts. They decide to feed random lines into an archaic word processor, print the results and pour over them. They are struck by the repetitions and patterns, eventually leading to their concocting even weirder plots.

When I write haikus, sometimes they come easy. Most of the time, though, I have to fiddle with them: search new words, take care of the number of syllables, adjust the imagery and so on. I write them on notepad, and sometimes I don't erase the lines. At times I have trouble deciding which version to post.

So here are some haikus in raw form.

Warning for 2 suggestive lines.
