To Make A Dadist Poem

Take a newspaper.
Take some scissors.
Choose from this paper an article the length you want to make your poem.
Cut out the article.
Next carefully cut out each of the words that make up this article and put them all in a bag.
Shake gently.
Next take out each cutting one after the other.
Copy conscientiously in the order in which they left the bag.
The poem will resemble you.
And there you are--an infinitely original author of charming sensibility, even though unappreciated by the vulgar herd.

by Tristan Tzara

Flies don't sleep in even the most oppresive heat - the pesky thing is the flies tell us when the heat is oppressive. Be that as it may, yes, I know what and where you were when this happened or is happening. Damn hot when one's mind sizzles.
