Found Poetry
Categories: Art, Kudos, Poetry

I’ve always loved found poetry. It’s everywhere. Here are two of my favorites.

One that I found on a vomit bag:

MOTION SICKNESS BAG
(for use during moments of stomach upset)

If an upset stomach is anticipated, remove
bag from this container and keep ready for
use. Do not be embarrassed by this pre-
caution as even veteran travelers are sub-
ject to occasional motion sickness.

And one that I found in my shirt:

Machine wash cold
With like colors
Do not bleach
Tumble dry low
Remove promptly
Low iron as needed
