©SKETCHES BY MAKO: 00000000dreams

In perhaps my very first dream,

Last night I swam with sharks.

I was driving a rental

From suburbia to sea,

Golden light spotted

Against hooded car and pleather seat.

Komorebi Baby,

Can We Run 

Away From Everybody?

Until I reached a sandy shore,

Car smashed into fraying plank.

Dead fish atop rock,

Bones exposed, its skin peeling.

000000000000deep breath.

000000000000dive, into saltwater brink.

And below I find

The body of a shark,

Gills pulsing with the foam of crashing waves.

The flip and turn of a fin and tail—

Her majesty sings in ultrasound.

I look on with awe

As my ribs splinter

Her jaws take me in,

And I let her

Because to be

Consumed by something

So large yet so beautiful

Is perhaps the most peaceful way to die-00000

I think the idea is interesting but i feel like letting AI programs make art reduces the value of art. still cool tho

I forced a human to read 1000 hours of AI poetry and then asked it to write “AI poetry” of its own…
(I’m not sure it’s AI writing these poems)
