That hesitation right before a kiss
I don’t remember ever learning this
Don’t matter what the circumstances are
Quit reaching for the stars and be the star
Eye contact is a privilege, not a right
Play secretary, I’m the boss tonight
Pentametron uses algorithms to uncover this poetry. Each word is ran through a dictionary to discover its stress patterns. If the words appear to be in iambic pentameter, the computer views it as a potential rhyme in its constant creation of couplets.
As for the why, the site administrators say it’s “To find inadvertent poetry in the endless torrents of language that slosh around the internet.”
And that’s reason enough for us. If you don’t do twitter, you can also view the tweet poetry at their website pentametron.com.
