Lisa Forrest, MLS
Kristin L. Strohmeyer

From this infringement upon music and other art forms, poetry reinvents the form of itself. The space within poetry for this emergent type of poem has been evolving and developing. This type of poetry is neither an anomaly nor a phenomenon. It has claimed a substantial consideration in the present world of the poem.
