In the previous post there was a computer poem. This is how it was written.
While looking for information on making books, in “Unique Handmade Books” by Alisa Golden, I came across a brief paragraph on Spell Check poems, a process which the author’s eight year old daughter had discovered when playing on the computer.

Hit the spell checker. You should then get a list of possible words for each "word" from which you can choose one. Sometimes you have to change some letters in a "word" to get anything from the spell checker. Remove one or more "bad" letters and/or add common letters like S, T, R or vowels until the spell checker likes it. These are the words I chose for the above letters.

You can then rearrange these words, make major or minor changes and add or subtract words to "write" a poem.
Suns hang skew.
The cupric mob
in red caps comes.
The more you read these computer poems the more they make poetic sense.
Have fun! I'd love to see your poems.
