I’ve been exploring with poetry lately and I happened upon a new way of writing. I have dubbed it Glitch Poetry because my first attempt happened accidentally as a result of a technological fault. Not only has the name stuck with me, but so too has it’s method of writing.
But how did I happen about it, you wonder? I attempted to dictate to my microphone using Dragon Dictation whilst I was in the living room. My housemates came in, continuing a conversation and the microphone picked it up and messed up my story. But the end result was a very strange, abstract sort of poem.
Here is a taste of my writing…
Who will serve glitch poetry?
That doesn’t want to be that what is,
These words bring the further and further and further.
I am the sample,
We will cruise-ship your idea about,
No control panel system,
Only evidence is there.
I want the latter. Must squint for locator.
