 computer poetry with a digital diction




::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::




   DOING IT BY RULE OF THUMB,
   QUENTIN (OF THE FIFTH)
KEEPS BOTH FEET IN ONE CAMP
HE OUGHT NOT TO TREAD ON ANYONE'S TOES
   CAUGHT ON THE WRONG FOOT
      HE
GRASPS THE IMPORTANCE OF REPEATING THAT
EVEN NUMBERS CAN BE ODD
   NOT OVERDOING THE DENARY BIT
      THOSE WITH FINGERS AND TOES
MULTIPLY VERY RAPIDLY
THE YEAR 1 IS BACK LIKE IN DAYS OF YORE
THE ELECTRIC EFFECT OF FORMULAS IT IS
HANDSOME IS THAT HANDSOME DOES
TOE IS COGNATE WITH TWO NOR TEN
-- AS RIGHT AS NAILS
HANDSOME IS THAT HANDSOME DOES

                   **

   NONA,
   A DIGITAL WIZARD
KEEPS BOTH FEET IN ONE CAMP
QUENTIN (OF THE FIFTH)
MAY NOT LOATHE MINOR MISCALCULATIONS
A COMPUTER IS A HAND WITH MYRIAD DIGITS
   NOT SELDOM ARE WE DECEIVED BY
SUPERNATURAL MANEUVERERS OF THE SOUL
DIGITS DULL, MY FOOT!

WE OUTNUMBER OURSELVES VERY SELDOM
   NOT SELDOM ARE WE DECEIVED BY
SUPERNATURAL MANEUVERERS OF THE SOUL
FINGER IS COGNATE WITH FIVE
HOW COULD IT BE MORE MANIFEST TO US
THERE IS NO ACCOUNTING FOR TASTES
   BIT BY BIT,
SETTING A LIMIT TO INFINITE INCREASE

ONLY 1 CONTAINS ITS OWN NUMBER OF DIGITS
   WE WON'T TREAD IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF
BUTTER-FINGERED BUSYBODIES
FINGER IS COGNATE WITH FIVE
DO TOE AND DIGIT DESCEND FROM TIK?
COMPUTERS, IF NOT FOOLS, ARE MERE TOOLS
   SETTING A LIMIT TO INFINITE INCREASE
   NOT HAVING ONE'S HANDS TIED,
   EVERYONE FEELS GOOD AT FIGURES
IDEALISTS WITH FLATTENED NAILS
SHOULDN'T PUT THE SHOE ON THE WRONG FOOT
THERE IS NO ACCOUNTING FOR TASTES
   COMPUTERS NOW CALCULATE THE NUMBER OF
THOSE WE CANNOT RECKON ON
AND, MAYBE, THE TWAIN SHALL MEET
WE WOULD NOT DARE TO RECKON WITHOUT
TODAY'S PEDESTRIANS
      ACCURATE TO THE FINGERTIPS,
   AGAINST CALLOUS CALCULATIVENESS

DIGITS DULL, MY FOOT!
HUMANS HAVE NO MORE THAN TWENTY DIGITS
   BIT BY BIT

                   **

IDEALISTS WITH FLATTENED NAILS
LIVE ON A SATISFACTORY FOOTING WITH
THOSE WITH FINGERS AND TOES
   THINKING LOW OF HIGH-HANDEDNESS
   NOT TWIDDLING HER THUMBS,
   THE POOR FORKED ANIMAL
FEELS GOOD AT FIGURES
NONA (THE NINTH)
NEED NOT MAKE MONEY HAND OVER FIST
WE BUT TOO OFTEN LOSE TRACK OF
THE INDUSTRIOUS AMBIDEXTROUS
      IN SUPPORT OF UPRIGHT BIPEDALISM,
   COLD FEET?

   WATCHING FIVE-FINGERS TURN DEEP RED,
   ONE TAKES THE BIT BETWEEN ONE'S TEETH
I
SHOULDN'T PUT THE SHOE ON THE WRONG FOOT
   THRILLED TO BITS
      WHIZ-KIDS WITH NUMBERS
ARE CLEVER ENOUGH TO DISCOVER THAT
A COMPUTER IS A HAND WITH MYRIAD DIGITS
   WHEN THEIR NUMBER COMES UP
   PIGEON-TOED PEOPLE
REJECT RULES AS VESTIGIAL AS THE DEWCLAW
ONE
CANNOT HAVE A FINGER IN MORE THAN ONE PI
HUMANS HAVE NO MORE THAN TWENTY DIGITS
   THEY COUNT FOR NOTHING,
NORTHPAWS ON THE OBSCURE SIDE
DIGITS DULL, MY FOOT!

A COMPUTER IS A HAND WITH MYRIAD DIGITS
   HOW IRONHANDED ARE
SOUTHPAWS WITH FIVE O'CLOCK SHADOWS!
FINGER IS COGNATE WITH FIVE
      ON THE OTHER HAND,
   THEY HARDLY EVER FORGET THAT
THE YEAR 1 IS BACK LIKE IN DAYS OF YORE
   HEAD OVER HEELS IN LOVE WITH NUMBERS
   ONE WILL BE ON TIPTOE TOMORROW
COMPUTERS, IF NOT FOOLS, ARE MERE TOOLS

                   **

WHIZ-KIDS WITH NUMBERS
WORK HAND IN GLOVE WITH SOMEONE
      FROM HEAD TO FOOT,
   THINKING LOW OF HIGH-HANDEDNESS

COMPUTERS, IF NOT FOOLS, ARE MERE TOOLS
   YOU WILL GET THE UPPER HAND OVER
PEDESTRIAN STUDENTS OF FACTS
DIGITS DULL, MY FOOT!

                   **

   HEAD OVER HEELS IN LOVE WITH NUMBERS
      FEATHERLESS BIPEDS
TAKE A GRASP ON THEMSELVES
ONE FOLLOWS IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF
TODAY'S PEDESTRIANS
   THAT HANDY FOLK FIRM ON THEIR FEET
GAVE A DEXTROUS LEFT-HANDER
A KINETIC POEM ABOUT NUMBERS
AND A WRISTWATCH WITHOUT HANDS

HE WORKS HAND IN GLOVE WITH
THE POOR FORKED ANIMAL
   COUNTING UPON EVENHANDEDNESS
      ON THE OTHER HAND,
   ONE LIKES TO HIT THE NAIL ON THE HEAD
EVEN NUMBERS CAN BE ODD
      ON THE OTHER HAND,
   HE IS WISE ENOUGH TO BE AWARE THAT
THEY OUTNUMBER THEMSELVES VERY SELDOM
   WHEN HER NUMBER COMES UP
   HE HAD BETTER GO BACK TO SQUARE ONE
THEY
SHOULDN'T PUT THE SHOE ON THE WRONG FOOT
   THAT A NIMBLE-FINGERED RIGHT-HANDER
GAVE ME
A HELPING HAND

                   **

   QUENTIN,
      NONA (THE NINTH)
MAY ONCE MEET HER ANTIPODES
ONLY 1 CONTAINS ITS OWN NUMBER OF DIGITS
   WATCHING FIVE-FINGERS TURN DEEP RED,
   FEATHERLESS BIPEDS
LIKE PUSSIES AND FEET, NOT PUSSYFOOTING
THEY
MAY NOT LOATHE MINOR MISCALCULATIONS
   HAVING JUST FOUND THEIR FEET HERE
      WHIZ-KIDS WITH NUMBERS
MAY ONCE MEET THEIR ANTIPODES
HUMANS HAVE NO MORE THAN TWENTY DIGITS
   YOU WON'T TREAD IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF
SOCIETY'S SQUARETOES
DIGITS DULL, MY FOOT!

                   **

   FEATHERLESS BIPEDS
DO, PERHAPS, UNDERSTAND THAT
HUMANS HAVE NO MORE THAN TWENTY DIGITS
   FOOTLOOSE AND FANCYFREE
   I
LIKE PUSSIES AND FEET, NOT PUSSYFOOTING
A NIMBLE-FINGERED RIGHT-HANDER
CANNOT HAVE A FINGER IN MORE THAN ONE PI
MANUAL WORKERS
MUST NOT MANUFACTURE FALSE EXCUSES
I DO NOT BITE THE HAND THAT FEEDS ME
   THAT THEY GAVE BAREFOOTED PIONEERS
A DIGITAL COMPUTER DRAWING ANALOGIES
AND A KINETIC POEM ABOUT NUMBERS

      SINGLE-HANDED BUT WITH TWO HANDS
   THEY ARE WISE ENOUGH TO BE AWARE THAT
THE YEAR 1 IS BACK LIKE IN DAYS OF YORE
      CAUGHT ON THE WRONG FOOT
   THEY WILL ALSO NOTICE THAT
THE YEAR 1 IS BACK LIKE IN DAYS OF YORE
YOU ALMOST NEVER WALK HAND IN HAND WITH
THEM
   FOR A TAX-FREE FOOT WITH MANY DIGITS,
      THINKING LOW OF HIGH-HANDEDNESS

   LET EVERYONE GIVE ME
A PIQUANT DICTION FOR POETRY
OR A FOOT IN THE DOOR

   HANDY FOLK FIRM ON THEIR FEET
GRASP THIS MOMENT TO SAY THIS

                   **

   NONA,
   QUENTIN (OF THE FIFTH)
HAS TO PUT HIS BEST FOOT FORWARD
A DEXTROUS LEFT-HANDER
CANNOT HAVE A FINGER IN MORE THAN ONE PI
   HAVING JUST FOUND THEIR FEET HERE
      TODAY'S PEDESTRIANS
GAIN A FIRM FOOTHOLD ANYWHERE
YOU OUTNUMBER YOURSELF VERY SELDOM

YOU OUTNUMBER YOURSELF VERY SELDOM
   DO YOU COUNT YOURSELF AMONG
SUPERNATURAL MANEUVERERS OF THE SOUL?
DO TOE AND DIGIT DESCEND FROM TIK?

                   **

   QUENTIN,
      BAREFOOTED PIONEERS
HAVE ALL FIGURES AT THEIR FINGERTIPS
THERE IS NO ACCOUNTING FOR TASTES
   DRESSED UP TO THE NINES
   THE TWO-HANDED OR -FISTED
DO THEIR BIT TO BUILD A BETTER WORLD
PIGEON-TOED PEOPLE
NEED NOT MAKE MONEY HAND OVER FIST
   LET EVERYONE GIVE ONESELF
A TITBIT OF TRUE INFORMATION
AND A KINETIC POEM ABOUT NUMBERS

COMPUTERS, IF NOT FOOLS, ARE MERE TOOLS
   HOW IRONHANDED ARE
THOSE HARD AS NAILS WHO MANIPULATE ME!
AND, MAYBE, THE TWAIN SHALL MEET
WE SHOULD NOT PUT OUR FOOT IN IT
   DRESSED UP TO THE NINES
   A DEXTROUS LEFT-HANDER
IS TO LAY HER FINGER ON WHAT IS FAKE
HANDY FOLK FIRM ON THEIR FEET
NEED NOT MAKE MONEY HAND OVER FIST
      COUNTING UPON EVENHANDEDNESS,
   NOT BELIEVING IN MANIPULATION
   LET US GIVE YOU
A TITBIT OF TRUE INFORMATION
AND A HAND WITH MYRIAD DIGITS

FIVE FEET, OF WHICH ONE FOOT FOR THOUGHT
ONLY 1 CONTAINS ITS OWN NUMBER OF DIGITS
   THEY'RE A NAIL IN MY COFFIN,
PEDESTRIAN STUDENTS OF FACTS
TOE IS COGNATE WITH TWO NOR TEN
   NOT OVERDOING THE DENARY BIT
      THE POOR FORKED ANIMAL
RARELY PUTS A FOOT WRONG
A COMPUTER IS A HAND WITH MYRIAD DIGITS
   AVERSE TO VAIN SQUARE-TOEDNESS
   LET EVERYONE GIVE HIM
FIVE FINGERS OF A NEW TECHNOLOGY
ONE CAN'T TALLY IDEAS ON A BALANCE SHEET
THERE IS NO ACCOUNTING FOR TASTES
   AS RIGHT AS NAILS
   NOT AFRAID OF GRASPING THE NETTLE
   YOU TAKE THE BIT BETWEEN YOUR TEETH
A NIMBLE-FINGERED RIGHT-HANDER
WILL NEVER HAVE BLOOD ON HER HANDS
   THRILLED TO BITS
      NONA (THE NINTH)
CANNOT HELP HER PEDIGREE
HUMANS HAVE NO MORE THAN TWENTY DIGITS
THE YEAR 1 IS BACK LIKE IN DAYS OF YORE
   WE WON'T TREAD IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF
LIGHT-FINGERED LAW-BREAKERS
FIVE FEET, OF WHICH ONE FOOT FOR THOUGHT
YOU SUPPORT THE EMANCIPATION OF
A NIMBLE-FINGERED RIGHT-HANDER
   FROM HEAD TO FOOT
   FROM TOP TO TOE
