“‘… a hip, digital reaction to the kind of boring, genteel poetry’ popular with everyday readers…”

I’m going to take a (web)page out of Slate’s book and call “Bogus Trend Story of the Week” on this front page (!) Wall Street Journal article on a ridiculous and rather derivative “style” of poetry with a name so annoying I won’t repeat it here.

Poetry is “popular” with “everyday readers”? Really, Wall Street Journal?

On a related note, can anyone recommend a good chiropractor?   While I was reading that I somehow managed to cringe and roll my eyes at the same time, and I think I pulled something.
