accidental poetry

In a blatant ripoff of Steve Poole's Google poetry at his excellent blog Unspeak, I am posting my own installment of poetry generated solely from the Google search terms that drew readers to my blog in the month of May. I call it Accidental Poetry. Everything that appears below, including the title and the signature line, come from Google searches. I only did cutting, pasting, and layout. Enjoy.

"catastrophically fatuous"

I am glad you are joining me in the virgin field of "emergent literature", which I decreed in what to my knowledge was the first example of it on January 31 of this year should indeed be called "emergent literature" rather than "accidental poetry". Please comply.

The line of "catastrophically fatuous" I find most haunting of all is:

rinko kikuchi node

The pathos of a a tumescent Japanophile mistyping "nude"! The extra pathos of a tumescent Japanophile seeing Babel and judging that Rinko Kikuchi is the only good thing in it! The extra-ironical pathos of the fact that that judgment is entirely correct! And the marvellous idea of a "rinko kikuchi node", a node of human communication in which everything crosses at Rinko Kikuchi! It almost brings tears to my eyes.
