Are You Interested in Poetics? Google Has Good News for You!

Language is a part of our life. Of course, language is important for everyone; however, we are more involved in languages since it is a life-style for us. Dealing with languages, read about languages, finding out amazing facts about languages… We all love these!

Since we are soooo involved in languages, we appreciate when we hear good and stylistic phrases and sentences. Poetry is a genre that most of us adore. I remember the days when we took “English Literature” courses… Even I tried to write some poems both in English and in my mother tongue.

Anyway. Have you recently realized that Google search results appear different than before. Google Poetics may be the reason! 🙂

So what is Google Poetics:

Google Poetics is born when Google autocomplete suggestions are viewed as poems.

Google’s algorithm offers searches after just a few keystrokes when typing in the search box, in an attempt to predict what the user wants to type. The combination of these suggestions can be funny, absurd, dadaistic – and sometimes even deeply moving.

There is, however, more to these poems than just the occasional chuckle. The Google autocomplete suggestions are based on previous searches by actual people all around the world. In the cold blue glow of their computer screens, they ask “why am I alone” and “why do fat girls have high standards”.

Obviously Google is not Shakespeare, Whitman or Dickinson – it can not illuminate the unknown. But it does reveal our inner workings, our fears and prejudices, secrets and shames, the hope and longing of a modern individual.

Remember that Google updates the suggestions constantly – no poem is set in stone. If you manage to catch an awesome poem, make sure to take a screenshot right away.

Our email address for submissions is Our aim is to publish all the poems that we like.

We have reached the fifth and final part of our November retrospective.More compilations:OctoberNovember Part 1  |  November Part 2  |  November Part 3 | November Part
