Twitter poems from Joe Turrent

“I’ve been using twitter to source language for poems over the past couple of months. Basically I’ve been searching the site for a particular term, then writing poems limited to the text of the first 11 tweets that come up.”

THERE IS NO EXPLANATION

tryna teach

tear glands to overproduce tears

defies

reason

how stupid you are

a black knee

at the behest of

the word sorry

 

 

I CANT HELP FEELING

imagine the

sad or depressed

cats in costumes

feeling

love, they leave

some of the

Worst

in the deep

off

my chest

I mean

they leave me breathless

 

 

CONTROVERSY

I understand

the internet

& virtually

the best rebuttal to

being

is

scenes of

disturbing

&

ridiculous

fame
