A Poem Written by an AI and Transcribed by a Human

 

Talk later?

The fact is, I can get it right away.

The fact is, I have a great way to get it —

for a few weeks.

 

All of a sudden it was the best of the year

and I don’t think that I have a great way

for a few weeks (or a few days) and I’m still not sure

what the actual number one in a statement issued by the end of the year is.

 

I don’t think that I have to go to sleep now

and I don’t think that the two sides to the gym

is an issue of whether or not it was immediately available to all of them.

 

I’m in my head and shoulders for a few days

and I’m still not sure what I was then…

a great day for the next few weeks?

 

And all of a sudden I won’t be able to see the new version.

Is it better to be the first half of the day?

Before I get a follow back?

 

I’m on my way home and I sleep all night…

and I’m still in bed all night…

and I’m still in bed all night.

Long time to go back

and I don’t think that the two sides will let you go.

 

On the way I do it again:

I have a good time with the same thing

to say it to be the first half of the day.

 

I’m not sure if I could be a good day for you

and I love you so much better than I thought I would.
