21st Century Sonnet

In the information age so much is done by computer. I wondered whether that could one day stretch to poetry. This experimental piece is composed of single lines from 14 songs picked by iTunes’ shuffle. They were the first 14 songs to come up, and one line was taken from each, in the same order.

It’s time to go home now and I’ve got an aching head
“Someday love will find you”
I find myself laughing
Walking beside the guilty and the innocent
Sometimes I get that feeling
I’m with you
Take me to the beginning
Risk your life
You have always been there
You’ll be happy and wholesome again
Stop you on the street without a reason
Send you roses when they think you need to smile
You’re the only sanctuary that I know
Did you get what you deserved?
