markov chain text generator trained on a few hundred thousand lines of poetry from project gutenberg—I decided this output worked best as short haiku-like poems

(people will try to make sense of anything as long as it looks vaguely like a haiku)

@aparrish The Tam Lin reference is especially choice from a polymorphous text generator 🧚

@aparrish should one be able to tell easily and confidently this is robot poem? other than "_My" clue...

@jimiwen it's not a robot poem, i wrote it, i just used a computer program to do it 😎

@aparrish ah I see, very nice🙌... so your "composition" was at parameter level and data set curation rather at word level...

@aparrish If you print these in book form, "Perhaps upon some sheep" would be a great title.
