(B.A.R.T. stands for Bay Area Rapid Transit)
This is a long poem I wrote called "Eye Machine". It's a part of my new manuscript, called Ghost Machine. It is written in a form I made up: the poem has ten sections, each section has ten lines, and each lines has ten words. The end of each section stops mid-sentence and continues at the beginning of the next section.
All of the lines in "Eye Machine" were taken from other poems in the manuscript. Some of them are slightly altered from their original form and others are the same. Also, I replaced every I in the poem with Eye.
I am going to post all ten parts of "Eye Machine" over the next twenty days, because I want people to have critical thoughts about it and then write those critical thoughts in the comments section. Even if your comment is, "This is some stupid nonsense and a waste of time," I will A.) feel gratified that you took the time to listen to my poem and make a thoughtful statement about it and B.) consider your comment in a serious manner regarding the aesthetic value of my poem. Also, you can post you comments anonymously, I don't care.
You Are the Best,
