  2. This is so cool! I'd never read about Ginsberg's American Sentences - but I found the article interesting.
    I especially liked his view on english haiku -
    divvying them up in 5-7-5 syllable lines makes the whole thing an exercise in counting, not feeling, and too arbitrary to be poetry.

  7. Good observation - like the counting in haiku's but maybe that says more about me. This is lovely.
