Brion Gysin let the mice in;
#6 lets the dice out. This issue offers 26 computational poems engaging with chance and the number six, many of which pay tribute to
Un coup de dés.
Experience flurries of language formed from
slots-like system for endlessly generating haiku
craps-like gamble that drives toward an end,
changing combination of disparate quotations,
subtle game of timing and connection.
Produce some instructions for yourself,
oblique and rotating ones
as well as some
providing guidance on how to offer aid.
Draw your own poems of
rectilinear and resizing French
curving and shaped English.
Several poems eschew legible language to
present planes of color from a single blurred glyph,
build architectural and evolving block structures,
offer a set of six generative sketches.
animated, textual, genetic interactions
dialog about what the ‘die’ might have been.
overtly deterministic dice roll,
the one poem the menu has to offer,
watch psuedorandomness surface through the waves.
Fire up a
generator of brilliant, named skies
metamachine for future-making.
And regarding futures, you can also start
assembling radical imaginations of them.
View what seems an
unnervingly patriotic game show
and stumble, mousing along, through
scattered phrases from an insurrection.
lines that investigate the six-foot distance
horoscopes that are alphabetic and symbolic
deconstructed cube of language.
