J.I. Kleinberg: Six Visual Poems

to be the moon

The dark

in the architecture

I’d always



Twice nominated for Pushcart and Best of the Net awards, J.I. Kleinberg is an artist, poet, and freelance writer who lives in Bellingham, Washington, where she tears words out of magazines and posts occasionally on Instagram @jikleinberg. Her visual poems, which have been published in print and online journals worldwide, are part of an ongoing series of collages (2200+) built from phrases created unintentionally through the accident of magazine page design. Each contiguous fragment of text (roughly the equivalent of a poetic line) is entirely removed from its original sense and syntax. The text is not altered (except for the occasional deletion of prefixes, suffixes, or punctuation) and includes no attributable phrases. The lines of each collage are, in most cases, sourced from different magazines.
