As a poet and an editor, the flow of words inspires me. If you’re anything like me, the simple beauty and provocativeness of Google Poetics is worth a daily perusal. This Tumblr — no affiliation with Google — discovers poems written based purely on Google auto-fill.
For instance, “Don’t ever try/Don’t ever try to teach a pig to sing/Don’t ever try to understand everything/Don’t ever try to judge me dude.” These short pieces reflect the collective psyche of the Internet, because they are based on the algorithm anticipating what we want to find based on what other people wanted to find. This Tumblr has been collecting Google Poems since October 2012, and is based in Nelsinki, Finland. Submissions are invited by readers.
