Works for me. Here's one from the top paper on my desk:

He proposed
setting up a scholarship committee
to judge the applicants.

The committee would include him,
TSAE's president, Past President,
executive director and an at-large member.

The CAE guidelines
would be used
for eligibility.


Hmmm...perhaps it doesn't work quite as well with a memo as it does with other sources.

Good try by Betsy. I just tried it on a memo from the State Library:

Let us go then you and I
when the evening is spread out against the sky
like a patient etherized upon a table
let us go through certain half-deserted streets,
those muttering creeps
on restless nights in one-night cheap hotels
at yet another pointless conference
in a distant city

Not too bad.

Betsey: this method works best when you start with something good like, um, poetry. For example, Jeff was lucky enough to have a memo written to him from the deep dim past that worked out pretty well with my Fist-microscope Poematizer. Helps though when the memo-writer is Mr. Eliot. Jeff: was that memo written from Heaven? Or maybe the other place? I wonder what conference HE was going to....
