Smoking Out Another Story - Found Poetry by Flutingspirit Smoking Out Another Story - Found Poetry by Flutingspirit
Found poetry/collage using black masking tape, scotch tape, sandpaper, glue and pages from the Jehovah's Witnesses publication 'Watchtower'.

SMOKING OUT ANOTHER STORY

I drank it all in.
A hopeless world
Of false documents,
A parched desert
Crushed in my heart
With
Some of my vices.

Baptized
Without guilt
Without prejudice.

Very interesting piece... glad to have drunk it all in. I particularly like how the lines "with/ some of my vices" complicate the narrator's perspective.

Wow, this is one of the best pieces of found poetry I've seen here in quite a while.
At least, I assume it's found poetry. Did you get all the phrases from the same pages or just all from the Jehovah Witness publication?

yes it's found poetry. I pulled the words and phrases from a two page article in the Watchtower magazine. Thanks for that really nice comment, i'm glad you liked it :) :)

I'm especially fond of the layered, textured style of the background.
And the words seem intentional--like you actually uncovered something in finding them, not just circled a mass of words you thought sounded fun to say in a row.

I especially like the last bit. It's very strong and seems almost bitter--but in a good way.

Thanks again for the feedback :)Sometimes they take on a life of their own and make themselves (if that makes any sense) or i might find a phrase that inspires me and the poem builds around that. I also tend to edit them quite a bit so that i can get a sense of rhythm which i think is important to...Less is more so to speak but generally its a very intuitive process. I've just been looking at your gallery and really like your poems...The crowd in particular is very good.

Oh, I definitely understand. That's the beauty of found poetry, I think--it makes itself. It's not that you write it really, you just find what was already there, waiting to be found. So much fun :)

And thank you. It means quite a bit to get a compliment from someone whose skills I respect.

I can't stop watching poetry collages like this Smoking Out Another Story-collage! The text gets a whole different meaning when you see it in a different context... Great work, I must say :D
