Do you want your girlfriend back?

Sometimes
       quarters
  react like a narrator
or         an indicative felon.

Why seek?
       serve the bounds
  overcome wisdom selling point
         at       mid-world.

Restate the illustrious
         moth-eaten
            saxophone
  distastefully.
       - Kuriko Yokota

Mr. Yokota traditionally writes poetry in haiku and tanka form. In 2002, he started writing poetry in English as per the encouragement of his friend and colleague, Ha Jin.

Dear Morton,

Have you seen this MeFi thread about your type of poetry?

I checked out the Wikipedia page (as referenced) and added my link to the Flarf page. I also started a discussion (on the Wikipedia Flarf page) on Spoetry & Flarf being close cousins in the modern poetry world.

Thanks for my first comment and thanks for the tip!
