My girlfriend, a talented artist named Maria Berg, wrote the following poem. It is in the style of dadaism (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dada), which is essentially an absurdist form of prose. She didn’t actually write the poem, she simply took snippets from an interview of someone we all know, and re-arranged the order of the sentences. The results are quite good. And not too far off from the original form, I’d say.
EYE FOR A LIE
Shouldn’t be doing those things,
but that’s OK.
I could ask you people–
you know, is it the worst you’ve seen
once it’s done–it was my original theory
Once you’ve won, once you’ve done it,
and they’ve done it, once you’ve done it,
there’s a lot less pressure.
It’s like a surreal experience,
in a certain way,
but you have to get over it,
This is actually the heart, though.
a good–he’s a good boy.
We keep it interesting.
But so we’ll see what that’s all about.
But once you get that motion, it’s in
It’s hard to get in, but once you get in
So we’re going to see.
Once you’re there, you can, you
oh, say hello.
