bitter irony

His Place Shall Be With You. (found poetry)

(click the photo to view full size to read)

obedient to

his place shall be what you
the woman spoke
a touch of insanity
of such a
desire to keep him
i do not wish
on myself
all that
bitter irony
sufficiently brightened
to be reviled
at his own pleasure
to awake
in the eternal fire
never quenched
who live
I must soon
I must
I must
I must



So blessed! said...

What is found poetry? Do you just make it up from words you pull from random tex?

Thanks, I really had fun with this piece as I don't play with paper and paint as much as I used to.

The Found Poetry technique involves skimming the text on a page you are altering, and isolating certain words to form a new message.

I have one that is almost done that I stitched all over the page. I will share it when it done.
