Today's LittleNip:


Our thanks to Judy Kleinberg for today's "found-poem collages". In the unrelenting battle against doggerel and sloth, J.I. (Judy) Kleinberg wields recycle-bin magazines, x-acto knife and glue. Her series (1100+) of found poems, which populate a small landscape between Dada and Twitter, between ransom note and haiku, explore the accidental syntax of unintentional phrases. She lives in Bellingham, Washington, blogs most days at and, and doesn’t own a television. (Check out these blogs for more of her work.) Welcome to the Kitchen, Judy, and don’t be a stranger! 

Celebrate poetry today by joining Judy in the battle 
against doggerel and sloth—try out a few 
found-word collages of your own! And if you happen to be 
up-Placerville way, stop in at Poetry Off-the-Shelves 
at the Main Library, 345 Fair Lane, 5-7pm. 
Bring poems of your own or anybody else, 
or just come to listen.
