two haiku for the tenth of March

Sissyphus pushes
the stone up the hill each day
all of Corinth tweets
What “auto-detect”
Means on every scanner is
“Never in color”
The first, of course, is an observation about the way social media can be used to reframe our understanding of persistent mythology.
The second is for anyone who has ever done clerical work ever in their lives in the last fifteen years. Ever put color documents into a scanner in faith that 'auto-detect" function would automatically detect that the documents were clearly in color only to have the scanned PDF documents show up completely grey scale?  Yup, this poem's for you! Yours truly has also been there.
