American Haikus (excerpt) by Jack Kerouac

A brilliant, if much too short, film by Irish artist Orla Mc Hardy.

For audio of Kerouac reading a number of his haiku (which are unusually fine examples of the form, in my opinon), see the six-minute track from the album 100 Great Poems — Classic Poets & Beatnik Freaks which someone has also thoughtfully uploaded to YouTube.
