Launches Russia Regions

Lance Newman’s suggests a ‘recipe’ for making poems. Mine, based on three news stories about Russia yesterday – about the spacecraft launch, Georgia and Russia’s (other) neighbours – is now online.

Pick 3 stories from Google News. Using only words that occur in the first 3 paragraphs of each story, make a poem with 3 stanzas, 3 lines each, no more than 60 characters per line. The 3-word title should use a word from each story.

Mechanical aids encouraged. Try one of the Hobarts [on the site] if you’d like to work with a block of language that’s been randomized or run through an algorithm.
