105 Ways to Give a Book

Poetry Friday: Search Poetry

I haven’t played in my StatCounter keyword analysis for a while, but it’s always so much fun. I found an older poem that I put together with some favorite searches in the Diamond form. I was originally inspired by the form of a OULIPO, a poetry challenge at Miss Rumphius. I think the searches are so funny, and yet so telling at the same time. That’s why I love ’em. The first one is from a while ago, the second one I created today.

My favorite searches are “Mo definitely” and “Condescending forgotten poem.” I can’t even imagine what that second one means, but the Mo definitely is right on target. Check out the Poetry Friday round-up at Big A, little a.

Seven animals in one picture!? And ...spanis. Hm. It sounds like a lunch meat, yet a language...

I think it's cool that people are searching out the BACA logo.

Maybe "poems in spanis" is a cutoff of poems in Spanish?

I'm pretty certain that spanis is a cutoff Spanish, but I really like the idea that it's a lunch meat. "Poems in lunch meat." So surreal.

I decided not to include my personal favorite search string, "octopus in ass." I hesitate to even type it here in case it brings up similar searches. It does make me laugh though, so it's probably worth risking more odd searches it just to a have a record of that phrase forever and ever.
