"Poetry is the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash." Leonard Cohen

Even though I came at this from several angles, I never really came up
with anything very satisfactory so finally went with the first thing I had, awkward as it is...not my favourite, I'm afraid.

Original statement: I guess the worst part was I liked it. (a quote by Johnny Depp about his character in the movie Transcendence) - sourced from the Edmonton Journal, Friday April 18, 2014, Section C, Movies and books.

Oulipost poem from the source text:

O aged ass
thy wurst port
west o' lucky

Choose a sentence or short passage from your newspaper to
complete a homoconsonantism. In this form, the sequence of
consonants in a source text is kept, while all its vowels are
replaced. For example:
ORIGINAL: To be or not to be: that is the question.
CONSONANTS ONLY: T b r n t t b t t s t h q s t n

FINAL PRODUCT: As burnt tibia: it heats the aqueous tone.
