for poet bloggers. Check out the surrealist machine called The Eater of Meaning. Type in the URL of your blog and start the engine. The results are a cut-up version of your blog. For example, the heading of my Ashbery story below turned into: I Wandering my Housewife Daydreams. Add your favorite distorted headline as a comment. Or write a new poem using that phrase as the title or first line.
