View Full Version : Spam Game

07-07-2006, 01:40 AM
I was discussing my unsuccessful attempt to turn SPAM into poetry with Michelle (drachin8). The poem is available here. (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=32628)

Well, the rules are this here is a list of spam e-mail headers. you may edit, move around, discard pieces, , and in general try to form a poem out of it. Preferably one that creates some tension or experience (which my example failed to do).

You may add articles, but you may not add anything else. Other than that, pretty much anything goes (you only need to use as much as you like -- no limit and no minimumf:

Have fun!

(Oh, I call this "I went to e-mail hell and all I got was this lousy spam" but you can call it anything you want).

As I said elsewhere, I seem to have a tendency to try to make art out of junk. (my example is the desire to create mosaics from discarded CD's)

Thanks for joining in -- and yes, maybe everything is useful in some way.
