A â€œfound poemâ€ is a poem made of a group of words not originally intended as a poem, but distilled from its context and arranged effectively on the page using white space and enjambment.Â For example, the end of this story might be arranged this way:
of his wife, going about her business whilst he
worried, nine years
he worried, turned from
to this problem or that
if you search
one face you turn
Choose a segment of this story that seems especially vivid and significant.Â Experiment with arrangements on the page that seem most effective in appropriateness and/or tension between the content and the form. If another student has chosen the same passage as you have, compare your versions.
