The Typing Explosion. "These poets are good, sometimes even great, proving that musicians, dancers and actors aren't the only ones who can improvise their way into art." Ingenious, or simply deviceful recreation??

Interesting. I'd have to see for myself to truly judge.

they are great -- they typed my friend a huge poem based on the title "My Cat Hates You" that graces her fridge to this day.

There's also the 60-second novelist for those who prefer prose to poetry. Back in the day, he used to "perform" on AOL. His "novels" were necessarily short, but often managed to surprise.

Stale, stale, stale. Random computer generators (not to mention the equally artificial poetry slam) put out garbage just as "good." This should appeal to the same folks who buy paintings made by elephants and basketball stars bouncing a basketball in paint and then on a canvas.
