Theories are always wrong.
Presence need not be awful.
We wait with bated breath.
When you step out the door, you’re playing a role.
This explains my usual lack of updates.
The rocket factory is calling your name.
If you managed to change some of your beliefs about breakups by knowing some solid
facts then you will have no problems in breaking up with someone you love.
Many see these transformations as inevitable outcomes of accelerating technological
development and global market conditions.
Note on the Text
These 555 sonnets are made with found lines and precise measures, a database and text analytic software. I crunched Shakespeare’s sonnets for word, syllable and character averages, and these are my new measures. The lines’ oddities are their own, the arrangement is mine. After the text analytics and data entry, many ways of assembling are found. I hold to the turn (when I think of it) and that sonnets are poems of a certain size, but little more. Something in excess of the lines passes through, it’s that I’m chasing.
