Flarfette Jones

Flarfette Jones is one of the early forerunners of Mainstream Poetry. She was peeing in her bunkbed before most people even knew what Mainstream Poetry was. She herself has not identified herself as herself a Mainstream Poet. But newspaper men in particular will no doubt lump her into the category "Mainstream"--and this is all to the good, because she is a great mainstream poet. Below two authors comment on her work.
