Writing a Comic Book Poem – Found Poem 1

Found Poem -1 is essentially exactly what the title suggests. I experimented with found poetry before in Appropriation Part 2, but here I have documented overheard conversations. On a particular evening I sat down and overheard various conversations. I took down several words and phrases and created a found poem. Simple as that.

Found Poem 1
Your deep deep heart
Predicts something new
close your eyes one year on
and say I told you so
string it up

That god awful band name
you should have never said
I’m sure she would have came to
If you’d fingered her
in the right direction

Look one more time
straight in the glass eye
shining right on back
It should have been fun
but you never asked her
