I have been the mark
and I have been the messaged
the sexual assault
I do I do
I decided to

with my life

so abhorred
the assault
the weight
the behavior

the assault that I did not understand
without consideration
because I file the assault,
you came out of the bed

the fascist moment
rips from the bed
Meat without a house
privacy bears into home
in the name of the bedroom

my boys of the bed
the sense of the Senate
the bedroom of the Senate

the presence
the sexual assault
without time, consequences.

next to speak
the masher
Senator Supreme Confidential
his year of porn
the valve of therapy
the reality of stairs.

Brett with his acting on fire
the beer,
the secure nominee stated constantly

Brett Kavanaugh discussed the bedroom.
I supposedly wailed in the Senate
I thought that I had my own heat
this tremendous insight

July 16, 2018.
Senator, run out my life.
hard to recall Mr. Kavanaugh's drunkman line.
the roles of my same hearing faced off
nominee drink
anxious, I recall

professional personal attacks
I had never never memories
the bed was hard to me to relive

the assault
the thing
the bedroom
the consequences
the trauma
the meds
the information
the experience
the letter
the details
the Senate
the President
the Washington Post violence
the assault in the room
coming forward.
coming forward
make my life.
Use my life.

I tried to describe the house
It was on emails,
and three drying from the bed
that bed post yells,
Brett, enormous drinkator
This tremendous trout
I had never, Brett
I was too afraid
heated by the assault without consent
the serious cut
the bedroom facts Furious

I am the media,
he is not my boss
but the words,
first fear my boy.

A-SIDE: Machine Learning Elegy for Christine Margaret Blasey Ford from Her Written Testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee

This text along with the B-SIDE were published by The Hoosac Institute Journal in 2019. We trained text-generating neural networks on the transcript from Christine Blasey Ford’s testimonial letter outlining her experiences of sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, as well as the transcript of Brett Kavanaugh’s verbal testimony to the Supreme Court Judiciary committee arguing against Christine Blasey Ford’s claims. The neural networks create their own new texts, pulling from the patterns and vernacular of the original source material – and we redact them into poems and then later manipulate them even more to produce experimental songs.

Although we typically use these texts to generate song lyrics, we thought that these two should also exist as texts independent of other media.
