We study deviation from the Poissonian statistics of the frequency spacing distribution, appearing due to coupling of polarizational and transverse degrees of freedom in a perfectly square vertical cavity surface emitting laser. The deviation can be controlled by strength of the intracavity anisotropy and its alignment to the device boundaries.
