A Fun Rant

via Bill Knott's billknot:

I wonder what other poeticules of diversionality PSA Prez Alice Quinn has queued up for future honors—

what other freakish oddities of the past does she plan to revive,

what other obsolete stunt-acts resurrect—

maybe she can find that "Found Poetry" guy, what was his name?—

or what about "Exquisite Cadaver", or Clerihews;

if it's Concrete today, why not Palindromic tomorrow . . .

there are after all many entertaining playtime pastime recondite forms of vacuous verse to waste away the rainy afternoons with idle fun and frivolous games . . .

she did the VizPo gimmick this year, so why not next year pick a similar trivial arcane amusement like refrigerator haiku, or limericks?

via Ron Silliman's Silliman's blog:

One of the things I like about it is the way it makes clear that visual poetry & “poetry” are not entirely separate genres.
