I have tried my hands at different kinds of experimental internet poetry, and all of the poems turned out to have a dystopic touch or tantalizing hints to some fundamental philosophical truth. Perhaps this says something about 1) The Internet or 2) about my subconsciousness.
Since I have reduced blogging frequency, the number of spam comments plummeted accordingly – from 600 to 150 spam comments in the queue. So it has got harder and harder to find meaningful spam. In addition, there is a new variety: Such comments are not composed of meaningful sentences, but phrases of three or four words are stitched together to form a lengthy comment that sounds like postmodern poetry in its own right.
But I try to rise to the challenge, and even add one more hurdle. Rules for this poem:
- Each line is a snippet of a spam comment.
- Snippets must not be edited
- Only one snippet can be extracted from one spam comment, but not every comment has to be utilized.
- New: Snippets must be used immediately in the order of spam comments (descending by date), and they must not be re-arranged afterwards.
- All comments have to be harvested in a single session.
The following lines were taken from about 125 spam comments in the queue on October 1st.
The idea shows through the pamphlet
where people need to respond
temperatures will most likely govern
long-lasting usable cartoon figures
in certain places the floor is sinking
We have a very big problem.
The arrangement exists because of the persistence
using ontology within all things
There should be one internal link
You’ll be able to move to another location
Could certainly come zombies
A Dreamcatcher bard who have been heard
sober as opposed to
stepping off point
the one that has problems with panic attack
We will dissect too
cris-crossing the universe far far.
Scattered all over
the location where the profits have been
raving about choosing real humans
our personal fashionable ethos
As opposed to the isolation
produced by Zombie galleries
creating an irritatingly low experience
in the sci fi shooting living space
extremely like black topics
Our favorite self-theory
That particular creep
