This is from Steve Roggenbuck (recently profiled in the NYT). A rather interesting little cult has grown around him, as well as around a broader, burgeoning new literary movement people are calling 'alt lit.'

Meh, sorry. I love poetry. I enjoy found poetry. I love graphic poetry.

So far, I haven't found anything moving or interesting or original here.

I love this tumblr. I really enjoy when they capture an especially poetic bit of word salad from a bot or scammer.

From the poetry link, I read the like "INTERNET POETRY will be a beacon of hope" as "bacon of hope." The internet has rewired my brain in an interesting way.

Poetry is often mistaken with substance, while it is mostly context. Such detached poetry cannot affect its reader. While the basic idea - of discovering poetry - is an interesting and useful method; but the creation of poetry takes more than just a method.
