I’m going to do a blackout technique on the Whole Green Catalog (ed. by Michael Robbins) to uncover found haiku and possibly other short forms. they’ll be posted here with the tags #found and #whole green.
Aubrie Cox released her latest project a few days ago, and it’s a hoot! Fool’s Paradise is a collection of “found” haiku and other small, poetic forms — Aubrie invited contributors to create poems using song titles and/or band names. What’s amazing to me is to read the poetry without immediate knowledge of the origin of the words (Aubrie so cleverly arranged things this way!) — the titles take on a new life and meaning in the hands of a new person. It’s a great project, as usual, and I’m thrilled to be included! thank you, Aubrie!
