A little poetry generator prototype.

Choose random lines offered to you to create a four line poem. Sometimes you can create surprisingly synchronous poems. Sometimes it's garbage.

The system now picks from various human-curated lists of lines using markov chain probability, which should make the poems make a little sense. 

I like that we can find personal meaning in seemingly random things, and these poems are no exception to that.  

I might update with some edits/additions to the dataset. It's just a bunch of phrases I jotted down in my notes app right now.

"I will not stress endlessly,
Lost in the moment,
My words have no meaning,
This doesn't need to be good."

There has never been a bigger mood than this before haha.


Ahh I love this! 

Haha yes. Glad to see the themes that are coming through are universal and not just my own feelings remixed via computer.
