Hmm ...

... Search for a New Poetics Yields This: 'Kitty Goes Postal/Wants Pizza'. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

"Flarf is a hip, digital reaction to the kind of boring, genteel poetry" popular with everyday readers, says Marjorie Perloff, a poetry critic and professor emeritus of English at Stanford University. "You used to find it only in alternative spaces, but it has now moved into the art mainstream."

Professors emeriti, however, are not usually the best judges of hip.

    And I would have thought the WSJ would have known Marjorie was a professor emerita rather than emeritus.
