an interview with me (en français!) in arobase, on computer generated poetry, sound symbolism, and language models: arobase.substack.com/p/des-pom

being translated into french always feels so intellectual and fancy. like "...ces mots ne sont en fait que des îles dans une mer d’orthographes et symbolismes sonores, où il n’y a pas de frontières fixes et où un mot déteint sur un autre." it's like... get a grip on yourself allison, what do you think you're andré breton or something

@aparrish haha poet goals, translated into a language which makes you sound like fancy butter and expensive silks. I felt the same when a Russian professor wanted to use one of my poems, like YES please make me sound like velvet!

@aparrish spoken like a true poète et informaticienne

@aparrish The restaurant scene in The Matrix always called out to me after I spent a few years in French.

@aparrish OMG you're that much better than Breton. Carry on Allison.
