Pumpkin dense a pumpkin pumpkin

This is the second poem for today, created this evening. I made some long-overdue pumpkin chocolate chip cookies last week. Though when I first tried the recipe years ago they came out like “pumpkin scones” (not quite what I was aiming for but not bad), this time something was wrong. I may have fiddled with the recipe too much (I think I had altered my notes after making the first batch), it may have been the keto-friendly sugar I was using, it may not have been the same recipe from the first time, who knows. At any rate, they were falling apart, a little burned at the bottom, and the chips sunk into the batter. After cooling they were edible and held together, but I was looking at a few recipes to see what I might fix before I bake the rest of the dough. So this recipe came across my radar as a source text.

Though I’ve been playing with sales letters and Etsy product listings lately, I’ve been becoming aware that using texts heavy with marketing language as sources can be tricky. Sometimes, you can’t undo that hype-filled tone. The recipe seemed to have such a stereotypical internet recipe site style to it that I figured it must be beyond saving, but I decided to see what happened when I threw it into the Dada Generator anyway. Lo and behold, a poem with some wonderful Steinian moments (Steinian Cookie Monster?) emerged! This has some moderate editing: I tried to preserve its nonsense but I did change a lot of the punctuation and line breaks, as well as some words here and there. I also deleted some of the blander moments. I like some of the insistence and strangeness that comes through, so I plan to continue working with it.
