If Kerouac's haikus were 17 syllables, they would be less meaningful. Part of the beats' deal is that they were calling all of literary tradition into question. I'd be disappointed if he just followed the rules. I don't understand why we would even want to be form police for this kind of writing. Just let it be what it is, man.
