A twelve-page zine, collecting seven computational poems and a number of short prose pieces. Drawn from personal diary entries, the procedure of the Markov chain obscures and abstracts the writing into tone.

about the series

Markov chains are a swarm of mechanical wasps—text is their wood, which they chew and digest into a mushy pulp before reshaping it into new forms.
