Igor Satanovsky - Nine Swype Poems


Igor Satanovsky was born in Kiev in 1969, and arrived in New York as the Soviet refugee in 1989. He has been exploring the poetic crossroads of European and American Avant-Gardes ever since: as a poet, editor, translator, book designer, and a visual artist. He founded International Zaum’ Day (January 7th), and contributed notes to several editions of "A Dictionary of The Avant-Gardes" by Richard Kostelanetz.

From Swype Revelations

Technology made it possible to turn abstract strokes into poetry. This series was generated by performing random finger ballet on Swype keyboard of my Android smartphone, some editing involved.

After every word, Swype offers several predictive choices for the word to follow. Instead of ignoring them as in previous poems, I began accepting advised words in the poems below:

NON-STARTERS
Frog was born with a great deal of interest in therapy.
Therapy is the best medicine for children.
Contrary to popular opinion, the government has a lot of respect in it. Rub greasy skin around the edges of social media using your own personal data to make it easier for someone who can get into trouble to find the right amount of attention.
Frog was the first of many.
Harry was the first to admit it, but he wasn't even sure he had the ability to make the most of it.
Bark and Judi were also in their early thirties, and had their own offering of free speech. Based on their findings, history suggests the importance of understanding that risk management would not necessarily work for those who have suffered.
Frog was off course. Feisty and funny, he had never seen dramatic changes in his lifetime. Verb-based approach might've taken him out.
Harry refused to take the stage. And he didn't think that he could be the only one.
Herring was barely interested.
Geordi was born with one heart.

DYSTOPIA
The first thing you want to be able to handle is your situation.
Hayden tweeted about Trump's family.
Friends say he was not in his best shape and his mother died.
Freedom is not always easy or good.
Justin was gassed by his wife.
Harm happens to the poor people who don't care for the rest of us.
