Thought For The Day

If we can have - "Full Contact Fishing", then why can't we have - "Full Contact Poetry"?

Postscript: I just googled "Full Contact Poetry" and came up with this:

"Full-Contact Poetry is a digital play space for children's poetic expression. It is a software environment in which children can express their poetic thoughts, create their interpretations of writing by others and also share these expressions. The environment combines ideas from literary theory and analysis with constructionism to extend tools for poetic expression. Children can experience poetry by playing with words as objects, experimenting with typographic effects, moving words through space and navigating into and through the text, while also being able to incorporate and reconfigure sound and image. "

A fine premise for a thesis, but not exactly what I had in mind.
