I took notes on each poet's poem--for each poem read, I jotted down an image or two I found exciting, and I wrote down a few words from the last line of each poem, too.
I was not sure I would "do" anything with them, I just wanted a verbatim reminder of pieces of what I heard.I always regret not having the EXACT words I liked, to read later(of course, if books are available, one can get them, but some of these are new, or not yet in a book!)...
In the new-found "tradition" of Karen Head, and Collin Kelley and others, here is my attempt at a "Found" poem--ALL THESE WORDS ARE FROM THE POEMS OF KATIE CHAPLE, JON GOODE, AND COLLIN KELLEY...ALL OF THE WORDS WERE SAID, ALBEIT IN VERY DIFFERENT CONTEXTS, BY THESE POETS,AT THE POETRY-AT-TECH READING, THIS PAST THURSDAY
So here goes my juxtaposing of these lovely words, into a "Found" poem:
Where lives lust, but here?
Sharp glint of belt buckles,
used to punctuate a man's body,
the taste of him on my lips.
Over the water to elsewhere,
far away from Richard Gere and Julia Roberts.
You remind me of someone I will forget.
Have a great Sunday!
