"Random Letters" is an audiosonnet written and performed by Anthony J Fuchs.

The poem was posted to YouTube on 10 October 2009.


Some inspiration hits, and words appear;
there is no stopping poetry's conquest.
It's natural, and rhythmic, and sincere;
the words are there, and need to be expressed.
Your fingers start to move and letters show,
and soon they're forming words that make some sense.
You see them and you know that you should know,
but still you don't, and so with great suspense,
you watch the words as they form sentences;
a plot takes hold and starts to let you see
that when you're on poetry's premises,
you never can predict what there will be.
The sentences stack up, and then at last,
you find a poem from your letters cast.
