The image is a visual ode to the poetic randomness of Google’s autocomplete function. It begins with an attempt to type “everything,” a word that might be the start of a profound inquiry or a slip of the fingers. What follows is a list that could serve as the chapter titles in the most eclectic of self-help books.
Finding Poetry in ‘Everything’ Google Suggests
“Everything everywhere” suggests a wanderlust-fueled desire to explore, or perhaps it’s a nod to the latest sci-fi flick binge.
“Everything but water” seems like a philosophical riddle posed by a modern-day Diogenes—or a shopper’s lament in the beverage aisle.
“Everything must go” has the finality of a storefront’s closing-down sale, hinting at the impermanence of all things or the end of a hoarder’s journey towards minimalism.
Then comes “everything but the girl,” which could be the realization of a music aficionado pining for the ’90s band or a singleton’s checklist for contentment.
“Everything sucks” is the autocomplete’s way of saying, “I hear you,” to the universal feeling of having one of those days.
Finally, “everything I know about love” might be the start of the world’s shortest (or longest) poem, depending on the searcher’s luck in love.
This image not only reflects the vast spectrum of human thought and emotion but does so with a touch of humor and relatability, reminding us that whether we’re poets or not, we all search for meaning in the everything of everyday life.
