Poems in collage
Pulitzer Prize winner, poet Charles Simic teached me a technique through his book The Life of Images. "I for example, may pull a word or a phrase. Then, to find another bit of language to go along with my first find, I may grab another book or peek into one of my notebooks and get something,"
Then I took his advice and grab my scissor, cutting some random words and phrases from the book And Ladies of The Club. I cut a lot and picked some together, trying to make a little bit of sense, just a little. Please take a look of my first collage poem, Untitled.
