Sediment 

Poems co-created using Google autocomplete. Prompts in italics.

I want to dig for gold.

I want to dig up a grave.

I want to dig my way to hell.

I want to dig dig dig.

I want to dig in my yard.

I want to jump your bones.

I want to jump out of my skin.

I want to jump off a building.

I want to jump higher.

I want to drink your blood.

I want to drink that shot of whiskey.

I want to drink myself to death.

I want to drink from the clearest clear water.

I want to drink so bad.

I want to kill my dad.

I want to kill my sister.

I want to kill my dog.

I want to kill my mother.

i want to find love

i want to find my father

i want to find my iPhone

i want to find god.

I want to try weed.

I want to try coke.

I want to try acid.

I want to try something new.

I'd like to teach the world to sing.

I'd like to buy the world a coke.

I'd like to get to know you.

I'd like to check you for ticks.

I have a very particular set of skills.

I have a very bad feeling about all this.

I have a very dry cough.

I have a very high libido.

I need to lose weight.

I need to get laid.

I need to know now.

What should I do when I'm bored

What should I do when I'm high

What should I do when my throat hurts

What should I do when I grow up

Is there a good way to break up?

Is there a good way to make money online?

Is there a good way to reheat french fries?

Is there a good way to pop pimples?

Is there a good way to die?

Is it possible to fly?

Is it possible to have red eyes?

Is it possible to be allergic to water?

Is it possible to have black hair?

Is it possible to lose a pound a day?

When will the winter end?

When will the world end?

When will my life begin?

When will I get my refund?

How can I dig a hole in frozen ground?

How can I dig a well?

How can I dig for gold?

  • A poem by Matthew Gioia.
