    hey look what is &quot;out there&quot; !<br />http://www.poetryfoundation.org/features/audioitem/1956<br />and I guess that they are giving tis legitimacy via Ronald Johnson ?<br /><br />RJ of The Book of the Green man AND The Shrubberies..<br />I think that Ron Johnson was &quot;jerking off&quot; the contemporary Poetry Hacks and Tricksters….<br />maybe we should clear this up via Ron

    I heard and seen this erasure &quot;poetry&quot;<br />I think they got it fro Andre Gide when he<br />spewed-forth upon the page and smushed<br />&quot;it&quot;<br /><br />I think that they now teach Erasure Poetry at <br />the University of Jerking Off in one of their<br />graduate Creative Writing programs …<br /><br />meanwhile not one single person ANYWHERE<br />has mention Anoushka

    Reminds me of the old Foo Bird joke. Ah, childhood!

    And — as if to emphasize the point — the word verification on my previous comment was (I&#39;m not making this up) &quot;pooshine.&quot;

    Bacon on a stick — soon to appear at the Minnesota State Fair (if it hasn&#39;t already).

    We must excuse our fellow poets: In such lean times, some of us have to find alternative ways of bringing home the bacon, write?

    You&#39;re right about Mac Low&#39;s mastery. I wonder, though, if real poetry doesn&#39;t involve the poet being mastered by the language rather than the other way around. ???

    Ah, Joseph–<br /><br />don&#39;t be so hard on yourself. Someone&#39;s got to do the dirty job of making us aware of the unadulterated shit in poetry today.<br /><br />P.S. At least Mac Low had a proven mastery of language to begin with.
