Create a Found Poem by turning the mundane into something interesting. Re-frame words, phrases, and whole passages found on a page of a book. Loving books as I do, I’d suggest you choose a book found on shelves at a thrift store. If someone didn’t love a book enough to keep it, it’s likely a good one to use for this project. Be creative. You don’t have to block out text like I did. Find a unique way to highlight the text you want as part of your Found Poem.
This found poem reads as follows:
I am talking about
chains of gold
chains all the same
interrupted comfort and calm
to lose us
not seeing without any sense
this is almost incomprehensible
It’s so difficult
a need of you.
