(Written for dVersePoets, FormForAll. November 7, 2013.)
As Googlism yielded a “sorry, Google doesn’t know v.b. holmes” message, this poem is composed of random statements which came up on Googlism for James Daunt, the name of an early 19th-century character in my novel. There are a number of James Daunts online so I don’t know who these comments describe nor do I know who wrote them. The subject of my exercise is the fictional James Daunt and it was written as a fun response to Sam Peralta’s challenge to write list poetry using Googlism.
