some generative Writing to be Found
for Adjective Noun
All these poems were generated by the writer’s simple programs on Saturday, March 26, 2011 working with Processing (processing.org) and Daniel C. Howe’s RiTa (rednoise.org/rita), in particular the current RiLexicon and RiGoogleSearch objects.
Unconstrained; apart from the overall framing constraints which are: 1) two-word titles and lines; 2) each line is an adjective preceding a (singular) noun. Poems consist of six verses, varying as to their number of lines in that all the various programs specify that a verse-final generated line must contain, in succession, each of the letters in the string “toniae” (derived from the first part of “etaoin shdrlu”). STALE BIOCHEMIST was the first poem generated once the framing constraints were finalized for this work. No selection amongst iterations was made or even attempted. (As a matter of interest, the second recorded poem was: LITURGICAL CONTRADICTION, “mystical powwow // flashy refrigeration // correlated employee / otherworldly digitalis / horrific shoulder / offensive pound // mutual turbofan / emotional epicurean // precrash eatery // operatic wharf.”)
Monosyllables, otherwise unconstrained. No selection: first poem such, with bracketed slight edit, its own glitch.
The number of syllables in each word on a line must match. No selection: first poem such.
Number of syllables within each line match and increment from verse to verse. No selection: first poem such.
Number of syllables within each line match and decrement from verse to verse. No selection: first poem such.
See 1 above, however lines are searched on Google Books, double-quoted, to find a count for the line as a word sequence. In poem 6 the lines all have zero counts, i.e. they have not yet been indexed in the Google Books corpus. In poem 7 the lines have a count of exactly one in the same corpus. In poem 7 they have a count of one hundred-and-one or greater. 6-7 no selection; 8 was chosen after two or three iterations.
See 2 above, with line counts constrained as in the previous batch of poems. 10 is a composite: from two instances, hand-stitched, respecting other rules.
See 3 above, with line counts constrained as in 6-8.
