Daily RFT has long been tickled at how KTVI (Channel 2) web stories capture the fragmented nature of human experience, as in this story that ran yesterday:

It took fire crews about two hours to knock out the flames at one of the sites this morning.  The flames destroying tractors, mowers and a dump truck. The Illinois Fire Marshal is now investigating and is calling them suspicious.
(The style evokes Cormac McCarthy's The Road, minus the baby-eating).

But we're not alone in our fandom. As first pointed out by our pals over at Punching Kitty, there's a gal named Erica Smith who has been snapping up the bright little verbal butterflies that flutter out of Fox2Now's Twitter account.

She calls her tumblr, "Fox2Now Poetry."

Here are a few of our favorite harvests:
