Do Androids Dream of Moons in June?
Posted by: Keir Graff

(“World’s First Computer Was Used to Generate Love Poetry,” by Nigel Bunyan, Telegraph.) Visit the Manchester Mark I emulator if you dare–and don’t say I didn’t warn you.

JEWEL DEAR
        YOU ARE MY TENDER LOVE. MY AVID SYMPATHY KEENLY TEMPTS YOUR CHARM. MY HUNGER THIRSTS FOR YOUR TENDER TENDERNESS. YOU ARE MY LITTLE TENDERNESS: MY ADORABLE THIRST.
                                YOURS SEDUCTIVELY
                                           M. U. C.
