Ago you were

Jennifer LoveGrove
The Tinder Sonnets

These are little machines for transposition and mutation. For example: “You were last online twelve minutes ago” shifts its place in next iteration and then in the third : “You were last online twelve mirrors / ago.”

And more magic… from the same sonnet sequence:

“Last online two minutes ago.”

“You were / last online two manifestoes ago.”

The line breaks shape the displacements: you were ago.

And so for day 3065
