Posted by Ozymandias on Friday, December 05, 2014 (09:20:35)

News in Poetry Just for fun: Show us your best QuickType poetry
Posted by Ozymandias on Monday, October 13, 2014 (09:23:47)

Posted by fogglethorpe on Monday, May 05, 2014 (15:23:23)

News in Poetry Salon 615: An Open Letter to Lyle Lovett
Posted by fogglethorpe on Tuesday, February 25, 2014 (15:00:00)

Your lyrics capture the little things of a person’s manner or being. As in the craft of poetry, “God is in the details” and I can see you know this well, which is why I think we’d really get along if you chose to come over for a cup of that coffee with that cream you claim to love so much..

News in Poetry Robot Poet Creates Dreadful Poetry for Your iPhone
Posted by Ozymandias on Tuesday, October 29, 2013 (20:55:34)

Dig the daring of ee cummings? Love the lyricism of Lord Byron? Want the wisdom of Walt Whitman? Then this isn’t the app for you! Purple Falcon today announces Robo-Poet 1.2, its new entertainment app for iOS. Robo-Poet randomizes and matches endless phrases to hilarious effect. He’s been programmed to be a poet. But due to bugs in his software, he mixes everything up and outputs dreadful poetry. The resulting nonsense recalls the inspired idiocy of Monty Python and writings of Woody Allen. Link!
