I'm finally going to implement an idea I had years ago: namely, writing a bot to devise random poetic forms (possibly including metrical, rhyme, and stanzaic schemes), and then trying to write poetry using the forms that the bot devises.

I don't write much poetry anymore, but I wrote a lot in the past, and mostly I liked writing within stricter constraints. I wrote a ton of anapestic tetrameter when I was younger, but I also love triolets in all their variations.
