    Poets might end up taking flarf seriously but the remaining 90% of the population will never care nor should they because flarf is not written for them. Flarf is written by a clique for a clique.

    Loved this article. I had no idea how flarf originated -it was fiendishly ingenious! As to its detractors, I can only echo the words of Archibald McLeish: A poem should not mean, but be.
