Personally I don't think it would have the same impact if written as a monoku. In my view, every minimalist ku with few words and syllables need not be a monoku. The 'etc' coming in at the end of L3 holds the key to this nuanced poem and says a lot which wouldn't have been the same with a one-liner or without that word.

I think it would make a fine monoku

"my thoughts wild stream"

I couldn't imagine that 'etc.' could be used in haiku. 5 words only but in 3 lines! Perhaps I would have written it as a monoku.

I always wondered whether we can use this 'et cetera' and yes, thank you.
