@megabyteGhost omg I love this though this is genius. cummings would have loved it too I feel like <3

@pixouls ahhh thank you so much for reading and checking it out! <3

We've got a whole bunch of amazing computational poems, web essays, art, and experiments, like this beautiful browser poem from @abundance that runs on the hour every hour anonymous-animal.neocities.org
