for Rene Descartes

I feel so disconnected

old friends are far
new friends are new

I feel so disconnect

I'm nobody
and who are you

I feel so discon

give me that
watch me do

I feel so dis

what luck
damn blue

I feel so


I feel




I feel

a third

I feel so

what I
now knew

I feel so dis

traced myself
how you drew

I feel so discon

faultless in pain
greenvelvet hue

I feel so disconnect

ready to test
paradigm view

I feel so disconnected.

two diamantes interwoven... one collapse/expansion of odd syllables vs another of even couplets-

slight asymmetry... makes it better-

2(Math.floor((2*1))/2) !=

that harmonic makes it less certain, nice.

wonder who wrote this

haha! I thank you for paying attention to the syllables. They really are an easy way out when you don't have any creative ideas for alternative configuration.

I know how you feel about asymmetry...

I guess I would be afraid of it looking lazy if I messed with one of the lines. The alternative is looking too anal about having it be perfect. So anally lazy. But yeah, given the subject of dis connectivity, I guess being adamant about symmetry is counterintuitive. If I made one of the lines a ridiculous amt of syllables, that might temper the perception of laziness tho...

If you want to write any more programs for engineering poetry, feel free to share. I'll transpose them into the linguistic sphere.

thanks. ;)
