  1. Jess, I love found poetry, but rarely am inspired to complete pieces. This is excellent, not only because it's from Strunk and White, but the stylish use of the words as relationship advice is excellent. Loved it! Amy

  2. Amy - I love playing with found poetry sometimes, and the Review has good, fun prompts. it's fun to know there are others working on poetry from the same piece as you.
