What's this? More weird unnecessary poetry made in collaboration with AI? Sure, why not? I was feeling a bit stuck with a story I'm actually writing (yes, all by myself!) and thought I'd play around a bit to jostle the brain juice.
As ever, I fed in a bunch of my own ramblings, received some (pages and pages of) welcome oddities from the text generator, then selected bits I liked, cut and paste, re-ordered things, and changed more than a few words to co-parent this strange tale into the world. Let's call it a poem about a toad girl.
The girl was now a toad
Eggs fat with moisture popped in her mouth
thickened her tongue with fetid tadpoles
She drank deep from the flow
Pulled the river into her maw
Cushioned the dead with mould and algae
The toad was a big toad
Her brain too large
Her head as big as a sweet potato
Her cheeks a violet blush
where the current had battered her
I came closer
Saw the terrible green inside of her
the rotten warted pupils
I pulled the trigger.
