A New Taxonomy for Poetry

The default list of subjects when browsing poems at poetryfoundation.org is super boring. "Social commentary"? Yawn. "Trees and flowers"? SNOOZEY. I made a Chrome extension that replaces each item in the super boring subject list with one of thousands of words, randomly selected from a scrabble word list. Bound to make your poetry-browsing experience pop with unexpected new juxtapositions and recontextualizations!

The screenshots below show the before and after shots. Download the extension here.
