haiku. prose

Announcements are a form of institutional haiku. Students write haiku. Therefore some of the announcements we are walking by on screens could be haiku written by students.

They could appear randomly, unpredictably interspersed with the business of the day, which is how they came to be in the first place.

There should be no mention made of such orders of the day. Perhaps it will change people's behavior in an unprecedented and positive manner. Perhaps no one will notice.
