Poetry Apparatus is on a wee hiatus. Don't panic. Everything will be fine. Poetry Apparatus is a website, not a life support machine at the hospital.

Some examples of the kind of thing I do here:
- No-Repeat Poets - Built on PoetryDB.org, displays works by various poets as though they could only use each word only ONCE in their collection.
- Wordlegs Issue 13 - Collection of poetry in which words from the next poem fight with and temporarily replace the words from the poem you are reading.
- Maybe I do need advice from a garden - A poem in which the reader can choose to replace up to 10 of the nouns with the word "penis", but doesn't have to.
- Hullo! (Wordhaus) - A poem using lines from other poems as "blackout poems" within the main poem - so that the entire thing is made of blackout poems that come from somewhere else, and all the words can be traced back to their original context in those other works.
