Greta to see your poem here too! Really like it!
wow this is so original, beautiful work Natasha!
Thank you Vanessa – you are very lovely!
Hi Natalie. I was at the Butchers Dog launch and enjoyed your reading but didn’t get a chance to say hello. I’ve just joined Campus and was very interested to read your poem – one because I think its a clever and intriguing poem and also because I really like the idea of finding poetry in computer language – I wrote one called ‘How to write a Cobol program’ a few months ago. Maybe we have a new movement here!
Hi David – it was great to hear you at BD. I’d love to read your Cobol poem. I think you’re right – there’s some kind of poetry/code slam I will try and find a link for.
There seems to be a book as well — http://code-poems.com/ — but limited edition of 100.
Fascinating – thanks for the links. I should have realised I was only treading in others footsteps. I can see I rather wimped out by making most of my poem comment lines. It is available in Under the Radar Issue 13 (not online I’m afraid).
Serendipitous – have been meaning to subscribe and now I have! Very excited to read it when UTR13 arrives.
