Racter poetry

Racter poetry click there for more.

Found a copy of The Policeman’s Beard is Half Constructed: Computer Prose and Poetry by Racter a few weeks ago at the Eugene Library's annual book sale. Wonderful. 

Inspired me to get into this groove and play around with my dream imagery as poem -- a sort of found poem meets dream stuff.

‘Describe Yourself Like a Male Author Would’ Is the Most Savage Twitter Thread in Ages


A male writer describes us wimmin. Play the game.
‘Describe Yourself Like a Male Author Would’ Is the Most Savage Twitter Thread in Ages: The whole thread is worth a read, but it got even better once writer/podcaster/cat tweeter Whit Reynolds proposed a Twitter game: Describe yourself the way a male author would.

My Mom Went For

My mother went for Japanese surgeons
Greek doctors
tall Jews
maitre d’s from Guadalajara
all - American beatniks

dances, food, music, jeweled sandals
laughter, sarcastic comments
always holding her own
a bit aloof and if that didn’t work
anger, cut to the quick, cut out
shunned.
in other words, the Silent Treatment
before rage, or,
sometimes after.

the freeze could last for an hour or years
but later, friends to the end, laughing again
in the jeweled sandals, red toenails glittering
as she danced.
