ttc not a haiku

TTC not a Haiku



The TTC (Toronto Transit Commission) maps are encrypted with password protection so you can't modify them. It was fun trying to figure out how to get around that. You could use this map to navigate around Toronto. It is a pre-cursor to my upcoming in progress project - Smallworld.

In this work - the TTC map was ported to a Nintendo Gameboy but shown here on a Nintendo DS.

A Haiku has rigid rules and grace. This poem has no grace and does not follow the Haiku rhythm.

The not a Haiku reads:

i ported a ttc map to my gameboy
it's my broke-ass GPS
unlike most of my friends
it goes north of St. Clair
