Phone dada poems

Heta Saukkonen

 

Phone dada poems are entirely written on a phone with the help of predictive text and autocorrect and then published on Twitter. Sometimes the poems are good, sometimes horrible, funny or they don’t make any sense at all. Nonetheless I don’t edit them, and try to control the writing process as little as possible. The method could be compared to cut-ups made by Brion Gysin and William S. Burroughs but with contemporary equipment.
