Progress?

So here's a poem I didn't write but that was published with my name beneath it... in a literary hoax that I'm only just catching up on. How slow am I?

I guess this is the poetry equivalent of being 'punked'. But my main objection is that the hoax wasn't more creative... a computer came up with stuff and they just stuck names to it. So here is my first computer generated poem that i didn't even have to generate.

Progress

Right rights and left
.earrings
A glass
A shore
A delay
A delay

Glory

Serenity written inside hardihood
A kind of champaign
Confronted
Throwing
Singleness
Progress
High desires and
.sure places

Progress = some of your best work.

profound, moving, but above all, experimental.
