What is a poegle?

A poegle is a poem that you make from other people’s words (“poem” + “google” = “poegle”). Type a phrase, such as “before the war,” into a search engine, then copy and paste the resulting sentences that contain the phrase. Next, edit the sentences – subtract words, change tenses, rearrange the order – until you have a poem, or poegle. Anyone can make a poegle. The raw materials may come from others, but the poegle is the poegler’s own.
