Description (in English): 

A HyperCard stack consisting of an interactive literary piece.  "Leaving the City" takes two works - a lecture on poetry, and a poem - and blends them via collocational algorithms.  The algorithm takes a word chosen and, based on the x-coordinates of the cursor, will randomly choose which text to move into.  By creating a branching work - the two texts flow in and out of each other based on the underlying scripts - these "collocational jumps" generate a unique text.

Technical notes: 

Requires MacOS 8.x and HyperCard Player.
