I enjoy found poetry. Writing and reading it. As a matter of fact my first (and, thus far, only) poetry publication was found poetry in the final edition of Verse Wisconsin, online here.
I used to have a feature on my old blog called "found poetry Friday ." And heck, it's Friday, and here I am writing about a found poem, so I guess I'm reinstating the feature.
Over at the Hairpin someone's written a found poem from the comments to an article about Martha Stewart's drone video of landscape near her home. (I don't usually read the Hairpin but it was mentioned in of all places Popular Science).
I think the opening paragraphs are the the most effective:
How nice to see aerial photos of your Queendom
We are being watched, even here on prairie
I need this drone.
It's me, again, Martha! Is that the bee hives I see
What I love about you is the fact you perfect at everything
My favorite, the horse barn. Drones?
You can read the whole thing here if you wish.
And if you want to read more about found poems, I highly recommend the lovely corner of the internet that is The Found Poetry Review.
