Fun -- I love Borges "pumping the legacies of Smollett's baptism" -- but I suspect cutting up phrases, rather than words, is to put one's thumb heavily on the aleatory scales... And the fragments of A.E. Stallings' sonnet "The Fiftieth Danaid" I can see in there are reminders of the real thing: an intertextual text entirely processed through a creative human mind.
