That's the only kind of poetry I kind of like. The slightly deranged kind. In fact, the more deranged the better.

I once bought a book (now lost) which had a poem about the colour purple. It was just the word purple written in numerous ways in quirky typographies.

And you know the bit in The Shining when his wife finds what he's been writing - All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy - typed out in various ways. If that was available as a book I'd probably want to buy it.

Sometimes I think that near-nonsense, surrealism, jabberwocky is the most honest/creative kind of writing. Sometimes.

Supposed to be a computer trying to write a first Christmas card. I like it, but then I first read it when I was about 12...
