Day 210

I tried out I Write Like on some of my writing and, while my prose consistently gave me a result of David Foster Wallace (I’m going to have to read Infinite Jest one of these days), my poetry always gave me a different result (they were all prose writers … I don’t think it’s designed for poetry). I thought to myself that it must be just looking for superficial similarities and, since I can’t resist a good bit of alliteration, that became the jumping off point for today’s poem.

See what you believe
Unquestionably convinced
that you know what’s meant to be,
when superficial similarities
are all that you can see,
but conclusions drawn from happenstance
and tenuous connections
will never show you anything,
except your own reflection.
