if you haven’t heard, @horse_ebooks is a real boy! for the past two years, the account has been run by a person who used to be known on twitter as @agentlebrees (he deleted his account a long time ago).
this gives my horse_poems some new context. I thought I was being handed puzzle pieces from a machine, but I wasn’t. instead, the process was something like this: a person wrote a thing. a person read that thing and selected a small chunk of it to tweet. a person (me) sifted through these chunks and tried to fit them together. all in all, a very human project!
