Book Review


In this book, many poets have come together to create a collection of found poems. Found poems are a type of poetry where the words included in the poem have been found from another source. Taken from Facebook posts, book titles, the names of Vinvent van Gogh paintings, and more, these poems are witty, unique, and unlike anything you have read before. There are poems about birds, NBA nicknames, hardware stores, and other interesting topics. There is a pep talk from an Oxi Clean bottle that stands out as exceptionally clever. Well-organized and interesting, this book of forty poems is a great collection.
