Transformative work of the day, Richard Siken edition

The Siken Bot tweets lines from Richard Siken poems at 30-minute intervals.  And after following it for a few days, I find that I do see Siken’s poetry differently.  At this point I’m not even sure whether I like it less or more, but the tweets highlight his use of specific techniques, especially repetition, and  yet contrast sharply with the full poems, which have more room to use those techniques in service of a larger effect.

Other thoughts?
