Another Found Poem

Published July 23, 2012 by Elsa Pla

Visit a bookstore or library and sit in front of a bookshelf in the fiction section. Write down a list of interesting titles. Use the list to compose a poem.

Titles from the Fiction Section of a Bookstore:

This is where I leave you

without a backwards glance –

this vacant paradise:

a hole in the ground owned by a liar,

the kid–

the lucky one–

half asleep in frog pajamas.

Why did I ever

set this house on fire?
