I’m nursing a cold today and have very little energy, but I did manage to create a found poem by cutting up lines and words from other poems to create this new one. Whenever I feel my inspiration waning (or everything is waning b/c I am sick), I step into the creative process with a little help: I steal words! I then re-arrange them, put them in different contexts, and voila, a new poem!
So go ahead, cut up the newspaper, poems, National Geographic. Create something new and surprising — create something that you don’t quite understand yet.
