“Falling Up”

This piece of generated poetry was inspired by the tragic events of Sept 11, 2001. The original text was taken from “Darkness” by Lord Byron, however the words were randomized in code, and edited by myself.

tame vipers came and tremulous; crawl’d
twin’d and multitude, among they themselves
slain stingless—they
War, And a for moment more, was which no
Immediate inglorious; pang



Below are screen grabs of the randomized text and Python code used for its generation.
