If you’re wondering, “WHAT THE JACK SPARROW DID I JUST READ?”–don’t worry, you’re perfectly sane.  There’s no hidden meaning here, no code to crack (unless you want to try to rearrange the “poem” to what it originally said).  You see, I followed Tristan Tzara’s method in which he lays out easy steps to write a poem:
1) Find a newspaper
2) Cut out an article in the newspaper the length of the poem you want to write
3) Cut out all the words in the article and put them in a bag
4) Draw out the words one by one and write them down in the order they appear
5) Now you have a poem that describes yourself

Ok, so I skipped that last step.  But I did follow the rest.  I initially cut up one horoscope, but then I added a second one–this time adding the words not QUITE as randomly but using them to make the lines as metrically similar as I could.

So, if you like puzzles, here is what the second horoscope I added originally said:

Communication is the key.  Misunder-standings can be erased with a simple conversation.  Getting honest answers is far more important than winning.  A significant other could act as a calming influence by understanding your needs.

Can you figure out what the other one said?

Heard it on the Radio

I’m walking down the avenue
And the only one I see is you
And baby you know it’s true
Because I love you

Facelift

I know it’s cloudy, but let’s see a smile
It’s raining–but there’s no lightning to smite
So wash away your face of spite
Use drizzle from the cloud that spits
To drip away your sooty spots:
“Practice all your freethrow shots”…
“And rehearse twice for all your shows”…
—-“Diet consists of puppy chows”…
——“And boiled, baked, or broiled crows”…
So press on and receive your crown
Upside turn on down that frown

Camus Cafe

Our waiter herded us to our seats
Not skipping any beats
While he moved us to our moonlit table
We argued like animals in a stable
Over some moot point:
“How strong’s a moose joint?”
He with his stable mood
Calmly asked us to order food

A Windmill

A windmill bonked me
On the head, I couldn’t wake
Up ’cause I was dead

The Flaming Precedent

The farmer’s market, the refreshing farmer’s market, the transcendentalistic farmer’s market is barbaric vastly, it is so barbaric because there is no flaming in it.  If flaming is in aesthetics it is not sought.  Is that not an attempt for any letter of it and even so is there any place that is better, is there any place that has so much enumerated out.
