Have you considered that poetry may just be the former, and there may actually be a connection between the aesthetics of the two? I commend Wolfram's book to you on that point, if you have not read it. It's online now, you don't even have to buy it. http://www.wolframscience.com/nksonline/toc.html. If you are that capable in linear algorithm, you really should read it, and will certainly appreciate his observations on linear algorithm and the nature of aesthetics. There is a reason why we like the quasi-ordered chaos of light on water or fluttering leaves.
Unfortunately, like many other things in my life, I was as a programmer, at best, a hack. But I did really enjoy the journey.

Wild horses couldn't drag me into a programming discourse now. It's bad enough dealing with Cisco products.

Best,
