Gr4nul4r Synth3sis by Peter Milne Greiner

Gr4nul4r Synth3sis

O staggered sequence

into whose meticulous knots I

strongarm and bluff sense

O ululating wiki crypt I uninstall

on a moment to moment basis

here in this La La Land where odd is idyllic

I have cheated ascesis and made no advances

that can be seen these dozen increments and as many

dwellings      See how on the tonsils

I have rendered my desperate

plea in the theft of Tetris my quest is most

days?      Wands off, por favor

[Listen to this poem here, Read Peter’s article for SOUND here]
*granular synthesis: a method by which sounds are broken into tiny grains which are then redistributed and re-organized to form other sounds.
