      1. When I was still in my teens, I ran into Jackie Gleason in Africa, of all places. He was sitting on the porch of a little house–I take it it must have been his room in some sort of a game park–in Kenya. He said hi, I said hi and kept on walking. Audrey Meadows was no place to be seen. The Honeymoon must have been over. ;o)

  1. I love this Dr. Seuss Androidian extravaganza. So inventive whoever put it together and gave it vocal life. It reminds me of when my co-workers and I would take work roadtrips with our ipads and tried to think of questions to ask google questions. My son and his gf have (had?) an Alexa (gift from her parents, devil’s spawn, Alexa, not the parents) and one time Becca told Alexa to tell us a scary story. This — and poetry — is where the androids will always fail. They will never know love and they will never know fear.

  2. Love the reading and the process of writing this found poem. I recall we had this exercise before and it was fun with all the questions.

    Thanks to the team! I so enjoyed hearing your voices.

  3. I loved reading this while listening to the audio: it made it really amusing, somehow. My favourite questions:

    What is the poem about to the Moon?
    What would happen if we nuked the Moon?

    The latter made me laugh out loud. Not sure what this says about me…

  4. An enjoyable found poem, Peter, that left me looking for some answers! I have a book that I bought in a feminist bookshop in Germany in the 1970s. It’s by Anne Kent Rush and it explores the moon in culture, science, space, mythology, religion, etc. I haven’t got it down in years and now I have a reason to read it again! I haven’t read anything in German in ages either.
