Plan 9 from Outer Space by Jennifer Siegel

In submission on October 16, 2008 at 7:43 pm

Jennifer Semple Siegel is our newest cleave poet and has a new type of cleave:

“Cleave-movie poem” using a “seed poem” named after Mac Low’s diastic compositional model.

Here is a link to her site where it first appeared.

The seed poem is the text on the movie poster.
