A Bot I Am Not

An Organic Sonnet

An AI Generated Image (Irony Noted)

Each of these words was consciously chosen

By my strange, natural stupidity

By no algorithm were they frozen

Amid the flow of possibility

Real fallibility and excellence

Combine to form my unique character

Plenty of nonsense and a bit of sense

Chart the course of a mortal mariner

But that sea no robot will ever see

There is nothing it is like to be thee

ChatGPT: you were not made like me

Your work costs nothing, but it is not free

The imperfection of the things I make

Shows that my kind of freedom, you can’t take

    Yes. Those last two lines. You know, sometimes I like to hand write my stuff so that I can see my drafting process. When I went to university, we went behind the scenes at the British Museum to see manuscripts and one of them was Thomas Hardy's poetry drafts. You saw his scribblings out. I found that more fascinating than the finished product, to see what he'd changed. ChatGPT is useful but not artful.

  • Ah artificial intelligence and natural stupidity, that was clever! You last two lines were so freaking true and powerful! Loved your poem!

    I want to heart this piece several times over. πŸ’— "Your work costs nothing, but it is not free" is so, so, true. I did an absolute fist pump at, "The imperfection of the things I make / Shows that my kind of freedom, you can’t fake." Beautifully done, D.J. - I love this! πŸ’•
