T9 Poetry

There is a little piece of AI that i am enchanted with these days. It is
called "T9 Word" and it is a text predicting data entry system for cell phones. THe way it works is you hit the number key for the letter you wont, regardless of which of the 3 or 4 letters it is on the key, and T9 Word guesses what world you want.

So if you want "Kiss" you enter 5477
. But it turns out that there is another word with exactly these characters and it is more common. So T9 Word suggests "Lips" and when you hit the "0" key it toggles to "Kiss¨.

I like that, lips toggling to kiss.
