I Am A DAdA POeM

I am he – bleak fields are asleep,

My heart alone wakes;

I wonder – things beneath are not yet stirring,

While doors close gently,

there is silence in the chimneys.

 

 

I hear multimedia.

I see Door of Becoming.

I want nontoxic oppressiveness.

I am dissimulating fusee.

 

I pretend, nontoxic oppressiveness.

I feel dissimulating fusee.

I touch Door of Becoming.

I worry multimedia.

I cry gently – and there is silence in the chimneys.

I am – these bleak fields are asleep,

My heart alone.

 

I understand these bleak fields are asleep –

My heart alone.

I say sky gently and there is silence in the chimneys.

I dream multimedia.

I try Door of Becoming.

I hope – dissimulating fusee.

I am existentialist cowshed.

This Dada Poem was composed using the online poetry generator, I-am-poem . I found this generator by way of the post, Galaxy Girl. There are links to several poetry generators found on this post. Galaxy Girl was prompted by Linda Lee Lyberg’s post, Poetics: Surrealism in Poetry.

 

I selected words to use in the I-am-poem using: the Random Word Generator, words lifted from news articles, and some lines/words from three poems. “Door of Becoming” comes from Darren Thomas’s poem, Knock on the Door of Becoming.  The lines,

The bleak fields are asleep,
My heart alone wakes;

are from the poem, Evening, by Rainer Maria Rilke (Translator- Jessie Lamont). Rilke’s poem, Presaging, provided the lines,

things beneath are not yet stirring,

While doors close gently,

there is silence in the chimneys.

– More on Rainer Maria Rilke.

The collages, I am a Dadaist Poem 1 & 2, were created using scanned collages composed of pages/ads from Wired Magazine.
