After last class, I keep thinking in this idea.
Somehow, power seems anti poetic.
So I want to explore this idea, of making poetry (or anti poetry) with them.
Researching a little bit in internet I found some articles that I want to read.
In google search I found the article The poetry of power.
It´s about some dam. Electric generation. I couldn’t read it completely yet, but it was very suggestive to me. I am very sensitive to this topic since I grew up in place that was submerged to create an hydroelectric plant . It´s about power, of course, in it’s literal and abstract sense.

I also found this text that I am very curios about.
“What is money for?” form Ezra Pound.
There is also an article “The Aesthetics of Power, the poetry of Adrienne Rich”, that I am interested to read, even though I can understand better the aesthetics of power than its poetry.
I also want to work with a dictionary, definitions of power, privilege, money, etc. Synonyms, antonyms.
This is the beginning of the process, so I will stay in the first step and work just with definitions. I will create a simple program that replace the word “privilege” and all it’s synonyms for all it´s antonyms in a text. For the text I will use just the definition of privilege from the dictionary.
I couldn´t finish the program. I am still working on it.
My program is not working yet. I still need to fix 2 things. How the texts of Synonyms and Antonyms are being read and knowing what to print. I will finish it soon.
Now the program is working.
And I get some staffs, not still a poem. I will keep working know on the texts.
It is replacing just with one random word for the antonyms. In this case Mis fortune. I would like to iterate through others words as well.
now with the word
