Happy surprise.

While slogging away at my online class, which should have been finished and up for review two weeks ago, I stumbled upon a hilarious site: microfiction.org. As it will tell you on its homepage, "microfiction.org is a small, inappropriately-named collection of random generators of stuff."

I will not tell you everything, and thus deprive you of the enjoyment of surprise. I will, however, tell you that on the "What Would Jesus Do?" generator, one answer the generator came up with was this: "Jesus would transform 500 llamas into a set of encyclopedias with nothing but a nail!"

You may not need amusements like this, but I do, especially in the middle of slogging away at my online class, which should have been finished and up for review two weeks ago.

Very cool site, lisa b. I love stuff like this. Are you going to use it in your class? Oh please use the What would Jesus Do? generator in your class.

Here's my broken poem:

here’s your cracker

i’m feeling comfortable enough
foam, bringing the beer

certain band-delimited frequencies

I just voted for you for the Meltdown, btw. This may be a curse, so don't hate me.

Let's do a poetry book month (sort of like novel month. it means a poem a day or something.)

Kachow!

I'm so relieved that now when pressed with the vexing question of WWJD I can actually get an answer!

(Somehow I don't think he would have clicked "dirty mode" on the broken poem generator--tee hee)

My poem would get published almost anywhere, I am certain, but do I get the credit?
only managed to taste sour
till the kitchen's all cooked out
sail around the northern snows
jewelry & old emotions

its contrapositives
just like that
your rearview bluebird
