Poetry from My Mac

I love poetry. I like reading lines from other people’s minds, all the time.

Today, I learned of poetry from a computer’s mind. Yes, an inanimate object making animate words into lines of a poem.

Poetweet searches through your original tweets and transforms them into computer-generated poetry. The site says they “track the data of your inspiration” and proceed to “analyzing your deepest thoughts.”

All you have to do is enter your Twitter handle, choose between a sonnet (14 lines), a rondel (French lyric of 2 stanzas of 4 lines, last one of 5), or the esoteric indiriso.

Isidro Iturat, a professor of Spanish literature from Buenos Aires created this new standardIndriso is a poem formed by two terzains and two one-line stanzas (3-3-1-1), with free use of the number of syllables in its verses.

Here’s an example of my Twitter generated indiriso:

Well, these poems may not make much sense, but the poems tell a story, my Twitter story. Now I love my Mac even more.

Have a great weekend, create poetry and have some fun.
