Nice - this reminds me a lot of Non Campus Mentis, another source of "accidental student genius".

If you missed it, you'd probably enjoy reading Mark Peter's article Like a Bowl in a China Shop about eggcorns
(from the August 11 Chronicle of Higher Education)

It's a lovely poem, though the initial quote is neither an accident nor a student's work -- it's from either a Bulwer-Lytton contest or one of the Style Invitational WaPo contests (or something like that), and those things are hard to write.

Well, wolfa, I'm just takin' Dunn's word for it here... but you're right, it's almost too spectacularly good to have been written by a frosh.

Yes, I figured as much. I'm just tired of seeing the same carefully crafted sentences go out as "hee hee, accidental wit", and tend to point it out. I don't know how to get in touch with the poet.

I really like your Thursday short poem series (I'd like it even more if there were a list of them, category or somesuch, because I miss them occasionally).

It actually reminds me of a short story by Diane Schoemperlen, in her collection 'Forms of Devotion'. I cannot recall the name of the story, and I can't find my copy of the book, but it's a good collection and worth reading.

that is really cute, accidental or not!
