This Purgation

November 29, 2011

this purgation of the truth
that lifts up
this night
you wander through obedience

every man of god continues to
the incomplete state
you know and
you move
no use to engage

the devil can do
what room
to do you
to interior faculties
to the deepest affliction

invariably hinder
the spirit in darkness
the sensual interior motions

underhanded tricks
the lowest of the soul
beaten you may understand

natural intelligence and meditation
knows the soul
of the intimate

ancestral shrines
dark waters
thy heart are the part and immediate

heaven opens up
the faculties in

contemplation as great
tranquillity of god


November 25-27, generator: ePoGeeS, bigram generation with stochastic beam search for UH and UW, AE and AA, and AH and OW phonemes by stanza. Source Texts: Dark Night of the Soul by St John of the Cross (trans. E. Allison Peers), The Complete Works Of Chuang Tzu (trans. Burton Watson)

I probably could have set the beam search a little tighter. Anyway, I reinstalled my system recently and discovered that the latest versions of either Firefox or Java won’t let me paste text into the ePoGeeS applet. I’m giving up on applets; I’ll have to re-write it as an application, and stick to JavaScript for client-side apps.

    Generally speaking, this is great.
