The poem you see above is unique and has been specially generated just for you from the following RSS feeds:
/BBC West Yorkshire News//Slashdot//CNN Top Stories/
This project is based on a surrealist game that involves taking a newspaper, cutting out the words of the headlines, donning a blindfold and making poetry by blindly (re)arranging the words. A growing number of online news sources and weblogs provide RSS feeds, so I have created an engine that takes a special selection of RSS feeds and randomly re-arranges them to provide interesting and sometimes provocative poems. From February 2005 to April 2006 Surrealist Poetry sent poems live on the hour every hour to Speakers Corner, a dot matrix display housed located on the outside of the Media Centre, Huddersfield.
