~ An experimental poem created using the following cut-up technique:
- Find any source of text. (the first result from a random web search was used to create the above poem)
- Write down any verbs found in the text. Also take any adjacent adverb, if one exists.
- Convert one paragraph of source text into a single line of poem text.
- Consider retaining other useful verb-adjacent parts of speech, but do not retain any nouns, pronouns or adjectives.
- Retain all verb-adjacent punctuation and capitalization.
- Do not add any punctuation or capitalization.
- Eliminate all forms of “to be”: be, was, were, are, is, will, etc…, except where “is” appears as an infinitve form of a verb, such as “is thinking” or “is sitting.”
