Margaret Masterman and Robin McKinnon-Wood's "Computer Haiku" - shown at Cybernetic Serendipity in 1968. Their essay is published in: http://staff.cch.kcl.ac.uk/~wmccarty/DHO/readings/foreground/1971/Reichardt,%20Cybernetics,%20art%20and%20ideas.pdf (this is only Jasia Reichardt's introductory essay)
Robin SHirley's "Dune Tune" from 1972: http://www.bbk.ac.uk/hosted/cache/archive/PAGE/PAGE25.pdf -- and note at the end of that essay Robin thanks the University of Surrey for "authorising an annual budget for computer poetry since 1969"!!
