I’ve sure had fun with ouija poetry over the years. It has always intrigued me that by taking totally nonsensical, randomly typed letters and symbols, I could end up with a very original poem. Maybe these were not great poems, but certainly they brought up images that were beyond what I normally would have conjured. How great is that?
So let’s push that envelope a bit. If the letters are really “totally nonsensical, randomly typed letters and symbols” what would happen if we each started with the same lines of nonsense and went through the usual ouija poetry iterations to see what meaning might emerge? Clearly we would not come up with identical poems (unless perhaps Carl Jung was right), but mightn’t we find out something we didn’t know before we tried this?
Here are some nonsensically typed lines, done with my eyes shut and the only conscious intention to be to hit “enter” once in a while. Try your own ouija poetry technique on these lines, hopefully before you read mine (to be done now but entered in a few days), and let’s see how wide a net is cast when we start from the same non-sense content. (If you forgot how to do ouija poetry, see Goofing Around-3 above.)
