This site was inspired by the Coursera class Modern and Contemporary Poetry by the University of Pennsylvania, particularly the chapters on Aleatory Poetry. The computer is a great tool in this type of poetry.

I was loved the idea a computer program as an aid poets (and other writers) in creating unexpected and unusual language patterns that would be difficult to create on their own.

There are many ways to use the poems created. Different poems can be pieced together, used as is, or snip out bits of text to create something influenced by the poet.

Whatever your approach is, I hope you enjoy playing with all sorts and styles language and create some new poetic masterpieces.

Be sure to check out the alepoem samples.

In this House, the possibilities are truly infinite!
