American Sentences is a switched-up version of haiku invented by Allan Ginsberg. He defined it as one single 17-syllable sentence instead of the 5-7-5 syllable, three-line format in other American interpretations of Japanese haiku.

and past time to put away that basket of glittered pink hearts you kept.
Sweep the floor, and open into shamrocks with the wide green spring ahead.
