found poems January 22, 2016
what is this about the “found poem?”
lift the lid of a toilet used by children
they will have written you a poem to find.
look at the ends of a sofa slept on by cats
they excavated a poem from the upholstery.
when you have your oil changed
the mechanic wears a poem in his uniform.
stir the compost heap – see –
the worms have written words for you.
feel the slick on the river surface
the factories are spilling words today.
