It Wasn’t Like It Was Dangerous
Rear visibility technology
certainly has implications
ultimately for whaling
the problem is the ignition turn
switch is poorly installed
that it is very difficult in some of the finds to make
It was like Godzilla going through the woods
special enrollment periods
would have been avoided had the flight crew followed
the technological barriers to
doing this have really disappeared
The only thing you can do is go after what you hear
I had no idea that they could really do all of this
in just one day
We don’t believe the claim has merit
It was just a very loud boom
Mozart in the Jungle
All the other guys were looking for women
The way we mixed up the words
Why is everything backwards?
Running it is going to be a cakewalk after that
attention to what he believed was the coming apocalypse.
Poems were constructed from numerous articles in Seattle Times 01 April 2014: A-B. Print.
Note on composition and process:
Poem A is composed soley from quotes in section A of today’s Seattle Times. The lines follow the pages successively through the section, such that line 1 is from A-1, line 2 from A-2. The title was chosen from one of the leftover quotes. Poem B follows the same pattern as A.
There was a wealth of material to be had (36 pages of quoted lines), such that I can imagine a sequence to come just from this exercise alone.
