Twitter feeds, school notes, advertisements, street signs--find poetry in the unlikely places with thirty comtemporary poets. Imagine picking up a scrap of paper off the floor or reading a sign at a gas station or looking at graffiti on the subway and finding poetry in these words. The literary equivalent of a collage, found poems take existing text, reorder and refashion it, and present it as a poem.
