Angela and I both enjoy the serendipity of making textual mistakes. To commence our collaboration in my PhD project, I invited her to play a game with me, where we would text each other lines of her poems and accept any autocorrection that our respective phones offered. This is the result of an old Nokia and an iPhone 4 playing with each other.
