Digital found poem is a free random poetry generator for Windows that tosses tens of thousands of language snippets into the air, then rearranges them programmatically into millions of combinations of syntactically varied and semantically believable poetic text.
Besides perhaps being of interest to accomplished poets who want to see an example of how a computer can be used to try to write poems in a non-AI way, digital found poem can also be used as a poetry writing warm-up exercise by those who are new to poetry. For those just starting out, digital found poem will provide an endless supply of poetic text that they can try to craft into worthwhile poems. Not for everybody, of course. But for those just beginning--either on their own, or as part of an introductory poetry-writing class or workshop--it may be a more enjoyable way to start each writing day than to have to start with that proverbial blank page and hoping that the words will somehow come.
The user interface (UI) of digital found poem looks as follows. Click the generate new poetic text button and you'll get completely new text to peruse or play with.
Digital found poem is intended for a mature audience. Its dark and adult themes make it inappropriate for those too young for that.
