Poem in Your Pocket - Wiki in your Tiki?

From the “Ouch” and “This is kind of funny” departments, combined:

Someone out there in the world (should I thank this person or not?) created an entry on Wikipedia about me:


It was brought to my attention this morning. And then it was brought to my attention that someone else is trying to get it deleted. It seems that those on the side of deletion are just about to prevail regarding this article's entry. Alas?

Well, that was fun. My moment of Wikipedia glory, so fleeting. So should I start a petition? And if so, would it be a petition to keep the page up, or to take the page down?


Moving on (because that’s what I’ve been told we’re supposed to do in such sad moments), are you participating in this?


In honor of April’s National Poetry Month, New York City is hosting the 6th annual Poem in Your Pocket Day (PIYP) on Thursday, April 17, 2008. This series of events is intended to celebrate the versatility and inspiration of poetry by encouraging New Yorkers of all ages to carry a poem in their pockets to share with friends, classmates, coworkers and family.

This event is co-sponsored by the NYC Department of Education, Department of Cultural Affairs and the Mayor’s Office.
