But now - here it is.

An Englisch-German cross-over based on a search term poem published on my English blog.

This poem in turn was a cross-over of Q1 search terms and pathetic attempts of mine to take photos with my smart phone. Photos of a trip would have deserved something better.

English lines: © My blog's visitors.

German lines: © Elkement.

This is not a translation.

It is an experiment.

The Elkement has published its first Search Term Poem on its blog on 12-12-12. The first weeks of living as a practicing search term poets were exciting, intense... and heart-wrenching at times.

It designated itself as a leader of new cult, attracted new comrades quickly, and transcended the scope of its art to other items from the virtual scrapyard such as spam comments.

But it was existentially frustrated by discovering - as usual - that it just had been a later adopter, at least with respect to spam poetry. Find an account of those tumultuous days here.

However, in relation to Search Term Poetry the judgment is still out. Today, as per 12-02-14 it still believes it founded search term poetry.

This was the first poem based on terms delivered via Bing web master tools. Titles have been added, but search terms are unmodified - one line corresponds to one search term.

Bing poetry (1): On Web 3.0 – Animals Communicate via Household Appliances (I might re-consider this prosaic title)

anything new in microwave ovens?
just rodents
posts in dark
comment via microwave
the dark side is strong in this one

Bing poetry (2): On Theory and Practice

the word cliche address
theory of trying
i am trying to not get attached to a psychologist
i am interested in combining theory and practice
appropriately

At New Year's Eve the Elkement was rewarded with more great search terms. The following philophical poem was crafted from a mixture of search harvested using WordPress stats, Google and Bing webmaster tools. And after all, this is a tightly managed projects. Following the standard operating procedure we need to tick off search terms every quarter.

Intellectuals are scathing Facebook in error. This is not at all the preferred network of amateur food photographers, humblebragging spammers of personal success stories, or creators of uncalled for inspirational quotes. It it more of a philosophy, a framework, and an -ism probably that we subversive artists have been waiting for.

About one year since in having indulged in Facebook inspired art we are proud to present the results.

The Subversive El(k)ement has been on its meteoric rise to fame as a spam poet and search term poet since December 2012. However, only the most diligent historians of that sort of art know that the very first elementary search term poem has been published on Facebook. It is hard to find now due to a glitch with FB's timeline back then - one more telltale sign of the Siren Server (© Jaron Lanier) resisting subversion by poetry.

On December 6, 2012 the following poem has seen the light of day 5 minutes before midnight. This poem has been stiched together from search terms submitted by the visitors of the Elkement's Wordpress blog:

burn org chart
theory about stupid questions
just received a blank piece of paper in the mail
universe life combine
heat pump outer space
reconcile corporate goals
stiff wire instead of helium
sniffing of path
original idea already cliche
silly questions on microwave engineering
dead mouse smell around microwave
