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:

(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
